Pubs are part of life in the UK. Most people have one they’ve visited more often than I hit the local coffee shop. Foursquare is honoring those users with a special new core badge that can only be unlocked in the UK: Love My Local.
To unlock the badge, users only need to check in at the same pub three times. The unlock text reads:
That’s 3 check-ins at the same pub in the UK! Nothing tops an evening with friends at your local boozer – except, perhaps, your friends buying all the rounds. One more before last orders?
Foursquare is expanding rapidly in the UK, where they’ve opened an office aimed at partnering with businesses across Europe. This is a nice nod to those users who are adopting the app for the first time — or those who’ve been around for a while.
