May 9, 2014: Impeaching the Mayors of Foursquare
2014 – Foursquare tried to re-organize and turn into a review-based app more than a check-in app. They moved the check-in over to a new app called “Swarm”. Because of this, they froze all mayorship spots so people would start moving to the new Swarm app, then writing reviews on Foursquare.
Unfortunately, people didn’t “swarm” to the new app like they hoped.
Foursquare brought back the mayor option in Swarm, and then revamped it into the “Mayorships Game”.
Foursquare celebrated 10 years on March 10, 2019.
