Foursquare, a location-based social networking site for mobile devices where users “check-in” at places through smartphones, text message or apps, is coming up with a special holiday for Foursquare aficionados – the much-anticipated #4SqDay!
#4sqDay is all about community: reaching out to people through establishing business or personal relationships via social networking. #4sqDay or Foursquare Day is celebrated as a way of acknowledging the impact Foursquare has made in the lives of its users. With Foursquare, distance and differences are conquered, taking social networking to a whole new level.
Foursquare Day activities vary in each locality. While some choose to celebrate the day through get-togethers and/or lectures, others do it the Foursquare way – a check-in. In the Philippines, however, a grand, global celebration is brewing. Aside from the meet and greet of Foursquare Superusers, this year’s festivities will even be bigger as Foursquare Philippines partner with SM Cinema’s e-PLUS along with SM Megamall, Starmobile and Papa John’s Pizza.
Expect an afternoon of fun-filled activities on April 16 at SM Megamall Atrium. For exclusive treats, make sure you unlock the #4sqDay 2013 official badge to get your own swags from Foursquare and a treat from Papa John’s Pizza. The first 200 who will present the #4sqDay 2013 badge at the event will be entitled to a treat from Papa John’s Pizza and the first 100 will be given limited edition Foursquare Day 2013 swag.
e-PLUS will be raffling off flip cameras to lucky Foursquare Day attendees while Starmobile will be giving away a mobile phone.
The Foursquare Day Philippine leg is made possible by SM Megamall, Starmobile, Papa John’s Pizza and e-PLUS card—your most convenient access to the movies.
