Right, we’re all set for the second attempt to unlock Foursquare’s elusive Swarm Badge.
I’m sure we all know what this is all about now – but there’s an explanation in our blog about our first attempt if you’re not sure.
The key points are:
- We need 50 people to ‘check in’ within an hour of each other;
- There’s never been a successful dedicated swarm party in the UK – there have been swarm badges unlocked where people were already gathered for other reasons (like football matches and conferences) but no actual swarm parties as far as we know – so you have a chance to be a small part of internet history;
- It will only work if you invite as many people as you can to come and join in – so please share this blog (here’s a short url you can copy and paste: http://bit.ly/cGK2Y1 or use the ‘share’ button above or below)
- There’s a free glass of bubbly for the first 50 people to check in.
Thanks to all those who suggested dates and times that are best all round. We’ve gone with the most popular and so I’m really sorry if you can’t make it.
So, all that remains is for me to plead, beg, beseech and implore you to come along, even if you’re on your way somewhere else or on your way home and you don’t have much time.
The details are as follows:
What: The UK’s first Foursquare flashmob right here in Brighton!
Why: To unlock the elusive Swarm Badge
When: Thursday 12th August, 7pm-8pm

Who: If you’re reading this, you’re invited. It will be a great opportunity to meet other social media types or simply to stop by for a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
