foursquare have created a new set of Swarm badges for group check-ins. Super Duper Swarm badges are awarded when 500 people turn up in a location at the same time – and Epic Swarm badges are awarded for 1,000 logged in visitors.

Today these foursquare users only get a badge but with the popularity of services like Groupon we’re sure that the tech company is considering how they can work with brands and retailers to create offers around group check-ins.
