I didn’t do much Foursquare Day celebrating this year because my dad got married on 4/15! Yay! It’s amazing to see how much Foursquare and Foursquare Day have grown and so nice of Foursquare to thank us for creating 4sqday last year!Originally posted on the Foursquare blog by the Foursquare Community Team.

Foursquare Day Featured on About Foursquare Podcast!
Welcome to 2011! As much of a cliche as it is, I really can’t believe that last year has come and gone so quickly. It seems that just the other day we were gearing up for 4sqday2010. Of course, last year it wasn’t 4sqday2010, but just 4sqday. Everything was so new then. Foursquare had just over 500,000 users – a tenth what it has now. There were no foursquare communities. Super Swarms were brand. The idea of “epic swarms” seemed absurd.
The Foursquare Day event is catching on in every corner of the globe. In just a few short weeks, fans and new initiates of Foursquare and social media at large have self organized to plan and launch the first ever Foursquare Day. We created a website to help aggregate information about the many Swarm Parties and exclusive Specials on Foursquare day, but just browsing lists of information didn’t quite capture what was really going on.
We’re really excited about getting the website up, and hope you are, too! Haven’t seen it yet?! Check it out!

While we’re busy working out some of the bugs, please be patient. Our Team has been working around the clock to get this off the ground. We are absolutely astounded by the world-wide response to Foursquare Day. YOU are truly making April 16 the first global social media holiday!
