For you non-digital geeks out there, today is just another day. For people who follow digital media, it’s actually 4^2 day, as I explained to a friend who works in education policy fighting the good fight, and reminded me we’re not all digital geeks .
At Foursquare, we’ve always known how very special our community is. Today, April 16 (4/4^2), marks the fourth annual 4sqDay. Each year, we take this opportunity to thank our amazing community for all that they do.
From checking in, to uploading tips, photos, and addresses, to telling friends about the app, the 33 million people on Foursquare have brought us to where we are today.
Four years and over 3.5 billion check-ins since we launched, our community-created map of the world is more complete than ever. As a result, the brand new version of Foursquare is even better at finding the best places nearby, and helping you record your adventures — we couldn’t have done it without you.
A cool new tool added the site is data visualization, I spend a lot of time at Starbucks, in yellow. You can call me Mayor Vijaya! Check out the slideshow, for the different views:
