Good news everyone! Atlanta has its very own foursquare badge! Earlier this month foursquare began rolling out badges designed to help you explore cities around the world. They kicked off the initiative with London, Istanbul, and Paris then followed those up with badges in Sao Paulo and New Orleans. Today, I am happy to share with y’all that foursquare added Atlanta to their list of badged cities. Users who visit 5 venues on their list of recommended locations will see the following unlock text:
You get sick to your stomach when you hear the word ‘Hotlanta.’ Your city is also a forest and you drive the Perimeter daily. Whether you call 404, the 770 or the 678 your turf, it’s always the home of the Braves. Start poppin’ those (Coke) bottles!
Many locals will be excited to see the mention of Coke, our Atlanta Braves, and how they diss the popular ‘Hotlanta’ term. I love the song reference in the tweet copy that your followers on Twitter will see when you unlock the badge:
I just unlocked the “ATL” badge on @foursquare! Millions of peaches, peaches for me.
There are currently 75 locations on the list. You can keep up with which venues are eligible to unlock the badge by following this Atlanta 4sqcities list from foursquare.
Have fun exploring Atlanta and unlocking the new ‘ATL’ badge!
