Foursquare records check-ins from every country in the world, and also 1 from space
Foursquare users checked in over 380,576,305 times in 2010, including once from the International Space Station, the company announced today.
Describing 2010 as “an insane year” the three year old smartphone social network released some information (in infographic form, of course) about their userbase. Among the more interesting facts released today are:
- There were 381,576,305 checkins in total – that’s equilivant to 83 checkins for every man, woman and child in Ireland.
- The Rally to Restore Sanity was the most checked-into event last year with 30,525 checkins registered.
- Twilight Saga: The Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were the most checked-into films.
- MTV has the most followers and Foursquare with an impressive 118,370.
The blog post also reports that every country in the world (that’s 203 at the last count) has checked in, with North Korea being the last to register.
All of these boosted Foursquare’s user base by 3,400% in 2010.
