President Obama checks into Foursquare

in Uncategorized by

Social networking app Foursquare has snagged perhaps its highest profile user: President Barack Obama.

The commander-in-chief has joined the location-based service and will be using it to highlight places he visits and what he does there, the White House announced on its blog Monday evening.

Obama’s check-in coincided with a three-day bus tour of Midwestern states.

The mobile platform has seen astronomical growth as users turn to it to find out where their friends are hanging out and what they recommend you do when you get there.

On Monday, the White House posted its first tip — from a town hall meeting at a riverside Minnesota park in Cannon Falls.
