The new Foursquare is all about expertise instead of badges


foursquare expertise

It’s no secret that the new Foursquare app has eliminated check-ins. But the company still needs users to leave reviews at local joints without getting that pat-on-the-back from badges. Enter: Expertise. People will earn “expertise,” and when they write tips that other users like or save, a little pink “expert” status bar will fill up. Eventually, you’ll be flagged in the reviews as an “expert” in “pizza places” or “sushi” or “dance clubs,” and the world shall know your power. Or something.

I suggest they revert back to their old system. Reviews are tanking and just about everyone I know is fed up with Swarm and being forced to use it in order to check in.
