Handshake 2.0 Foursquare Swarm Badge Party

Foursquare Swarm Badge I'd like to win the Foursquare Swarm Badge.  According to HubSpot, only 19% of the over 1 million Foursquare users have it.

It will take a lot of "It's still who you know" handshakes to make it happen.

Fifty, in fact.  Earning the Foursquare Swarm Badge takes 50 people to check into one venue on Foursquare at the same time.  

If this all sounds like a foreign language to you, please let the Mayor of Handshake 2.0 Headquarters translate for you or feel free to read Allen Fuller's explanation of location-based social networks.

Can we create a "foursquare flashmob"?!

Let's try! 50 people, same place, same time!  Shaking hands to celebrate winning a Swarm Badge!
