Foursquare Sees Over 3 Million #4sqDay Check-Ins

Foursquare saw over three million check-ins on Saturday. The day (4/16) marked the company’s annual “Foursquare Day, ” and was its biggest day yet in the check in department, with 3,073,635 happening over the course of the day. Each individual who checked in also earned a 4sq day badge.

What’s the big deal?

Foursquare saw a whopping 3400% growth in 2010, registering 381,576,305 total check-ins over the course of last year, and a user base of 6 million.

While 6 million certainly isn’t as large a user-base as something like Facebook or Twitter, it’s also not a number you can simply ignore. Location-based social networking seems to be here to stay. Other location-based check-in services such as Gowalla, Facebook Places, and Google Latitude are picking up a decent amount of check-in traffic on their own, and Foursquare clearing 3 million check-ins in a day shows that it is a industry that is growing pretty quickly rather than dying out.

Do any of you use Foursquare? Did you pick up the 4sq day badge? What makes you use the service?
