Foursquare says it saw 200,000 check-ins, making this year's Super Bowl the most checked-into venue ever for the company (and the largest online check-in event of all time!). Green Bay Packers fans showed greater check-in activity than their rival Steelers supporters throughout the game.
Here's a couple of the interesting things we saw:
- From the creation of the venue onwards, Packers fans outnumbered their Steelers counterparts. At no minute during the game was Steeler Nation stronger.
- There were check-ins from Super Bowl parties in all 50 states, and 125 countries, including 13 check-ins from the Vatican. The NFL truly reaches everyone.
The company acknowldeged "We weren't quite prepared for all the excitement, and our "trending" server, which highlights popular venues for users, had some difficulty keeping pace with the high levels of traffic.
