Be a Groupie!

Ok, I've never shared how to unlock badges on Foursquare. Since people are always stalking me to ask about how because obviously I'm a Foursquare freak, let me say this first before I get on this tutorial for a badge that has been elusive for some time.


The challenge of getting badges for me is the real thrill of using Foursquare. At this point, if anyone has to ask what is Foursquare - damn you and Google it lah.

Ok, the badge I'm going to help you guys unlock is one that is considered extremely hard to get. It took me forever to get the clues to unlock this one.

Thus the value of this information.

If you don't want to know how, don't read on. But it's doubtful you can unlock this on your own otherwise, since this badge was introduced during SXSW 2010 (that's the South by Southwest music festival). And most of you not reading this might never get it.

See it was called the Groupie badge because apparently at the event, you had to collect the business cards from people that work at foursquare. Each one has a different symbol on the back and there are 6 different symbols. Once you get all 6 you go to a special site and put them in and then you get the badge.

First of all, CLICK HERE to get to the Foursquare Biz Card page which should look like this. You must be Java enabled obviously. And already logged in your Foursquare account page.

Now, you have to click the cards with the badges on it - IN SEQUENCE. The sequence should be in this order that you have to click.

1. Click on the Jetsetter badge (airplane)
2. Click on the Super Mayor badge (crown)
3. Click on the Pizzaiolo badge (pizza)
4. Cick on the Local badge (flag)
5. Click on the Player Please badge (heart)
6. Click on the Newbie badge (trophy)
7. Get the 4sq Groupie badge!


Simple isn't it? Please leave a thanks here in the Comments if you got the badge... and do let me know if you want to know how to unlock other badges. I'll try and help out what I can.

Maybe aku boleh keluarkan a whole list with specific instructions?

To add me on Foursquare or just stalk me and see what badges I have - CLICK HERE.

Have fun earning the badges guys...

We now resume the regularly non-Foursquare related rantings.. heh!
