Salesforce-owned customer support app Desk.com has added a new “achievements” feature to motivate service representatives to earn badges as they help more people.
Foursquare is updating the functionality of its “expertise badges” to make a user’s history of check-ins a better representation of real-life experiences, the company announced today.
Badgeville, a white-label platform for publishers looking to integrate social rewards into their websites, announced today that it has raised a $2.5 million round.
Foursquare announced a new partnership today, hinting at how the startup’s ambitions extend beyond location check-ins.
Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley joined Adam Ostrow, editor-in-chief of tech blog Mashable, on stage at the Mashable Media Summit today in New York to talk about his location startup. Among many topics, Crowley announced a partnership with CNN for the World Cup, and also explained how the company is adding rewards to its iconic badges, earned by users for performing specified tasks on Foursquare.
