Looking for some help with your Foursquare and Social Media Marketing? Then look no further than the badges of the people who you work with. Damien Saunders has been working hard to collect badges, pins, mayorships to be able to provide the best insights and metrics for the location based checkin mobile games.

The game inside Foursquare has two parts:

  • Any user can become a Mayor when they check-in the most to a particular venue,
  • Users get badges for activities like going to a 5 different coffee shops. The Super Mayor is a special badge for those that Check-in and currently have at least 10 Mayorships. These types of users cultivate communities and actively add to the Foursquare game by creating new venues.

The possible options for badges are limitless - Gowalla also has a similar game and rewards Pins for completing activities.
