Take a Tip from the White House on Foursquare

The White House is now on Foursquare, a location-based social networking website, which is the latest way for you to engage with the administration. There are over 10 million people already “checking in” around the world, and now you’ll be able to discover “tips” from the White House featuring the places President Obama has visited, what he did there, plus historical information and more.

We’re excited to launch this week as President Obama kicks off his economic bus tour across the Midwest. You can follow the President on the road through Cannon Falls, Minnesota; Decorah and Peosta, Iowa; and Atkinson and Alpha, Illinois. Through the new White House page on Foursquare, you can keep up with the President's tour and check-in to let your friends know you're there.

Here’s what you can expect from the new White House page on Foursquare:

  • Follow White House "Tips": See the places the President and administration officials visit around the country and the world, follow news and events by location, learn about the White House and more.
  • “Check-in” to the White House and events: Are you visiting the White House or attending a Town Hall with the President? Check-in.
  • And more: We’re new to Foursquare and always looking for ways to improve our online program. Tell us how we’re doing and what we can do better.

Sound good? Follow the White House on Foursquare. You can also stay up-to-date and engage with the White House on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, or sign-up for email updates.
