Admittedly, I've no idea whether those badges have any value besides a little ego massage and, boasting rights in social circle. Or, whether they actually encourage more usage.This particular case of gamification very much works to encourage usage. There are entire other websites built around badges acquisition (ex: http://thekruser.com/**foursquare/badges/<http://thekruser.com/foursquare/badges/>). What I wonder in their case is whether usage drops off once you've acquired the badges you're likely to acquire. Just from personal use, I know I'm checking in more frequently when there's something I want to do, like beat a friend in points or take back a mayorship.
