Picture 31 300x95 Foursquare launches in 50 More CitiesGood news for those of you desperate to play Foursquare, the hugely popular location-based game is now available in 50 more cities worldwide.

Foursquare has achieved a hugely positive response in its short life thus far, especially in New York and San Francisco where the blogorati have made it a posterchild for the new wave of location-based services.

Although largely designed to be a game in which players compete to unlock badges for completing tasks and to become the ‘Mayor’ of locations they frequently visit, it has taken off as a social networking tool as well. Many users have stories of how knowing where their friends were has led to opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have experienced.
