Foursquare Gives Special Badge to Istanbul

Last week we wrote that Foursquare has reached 15 million users, and the number of its members continues to rise rapidly. Foursquare puts its users in a race with its badges, and receives very nice feedbacks with its special badges and encourages Foursquare usage.

Foursquare used to work with its partners, and create special badges for them to encourage its use. Some of them that first come to my mind are American Red Cross badge that are exclusively given to people who check-in to blood donation centers in the US and donate blood, and NASA Explorer badge which an astronaut first received upon making check-in to the space; of course you don’t need to check-in to the space to receive it, you can have it on visiting some museums and space centers of NASA.

Foursquare began to work on some special items for cities. City badges can be received by checking in specific places of a city. First Windy City badge was for Chicago. Then La Ville-Lumière badge for Paris; London Calling badge for London and Bosphorus Badge for Istanbul!

You have to check-in at 5 different and important places of cities. There are 48 places determined for Bosphorus Badge for now. You can get the badge once you check in for 5 of them.48 places Foursquare announced are as follows:
