Do you spend a lot of time hopping around the city of Stamford? Well, if the city’s Downtown Special Services District gets its way, you’ll soon be able to enjoy a digital reward for your gallivanting, courtesy of Foursquare, a social media website that enables users to “check in” to their current location.
The DSSD is campaigning to earn a Foursquare badge for the city of Stamford. Foursquare badges “are little rewards you earn based on your check in habits (for example, frequenting too many karaoke bars, eating lots of pizza, taking your kids to the playground).”
Earlier this week, Foursquare made this announcement in a blog post:
As part of President Obama’s announcement to boost tourism in the U.S., the White House called on folks around the country to share what makes their city or town a great place to visit. Well, we want to know too! Inspired by the #visitUS initiative, we’re putting out a call for foursquare lists with all the best spots in your city. We’ll pick the three most amazing ones and creating foursquare city badges for them!
