Foursquare Post Yearly Milestones, Hosts Hackthon This Saturday


Foursquare, the location-based social network has posted their yearly milestones. 2012 marked the launch of their logged-out explore feature on solidifying their title as the world’s most complete crowd-sourced city discovery guide.

Last year, Foursquare welcomed nearly 15 million new users and celebrated their 3 billionth checkin. In addition to to logged-out explore, they’ve also made it easier for venues to give better service to their regular Foursquare clients.

The yearly Foursquare Hackathon is on tomorrow (Saturday January 15th) at the Foursquare offices in New York and SanFrancisco. This year’s prizes are fantastic and include the opportunity to be televised ringing the NASDAQ closing bell, as well as earning the legendary Foursquare Title Belt (pictured above).
