The cable network will have a major presence on the mobile geosocial network, starting with Foursquare.com/cspan, a completely customized homepage for the C-SPAN/Foursquare partnership. It is the central nexus for C-SPAN content, including official tips and information about the cable networkâ€™s new Foursquare presence.
Tips are at the core of the partnership. In public locations throughout Washington, D.C., C-SPAN will offer educational tips about U.S. public policy, politics, and government. If you check in to the U.S. Capitol for example, you will be able to access a YouTube video explaining aspects of the Federal Budget. More tips will be added outside of D.C. later on.
This kind of located media is genuinely NEW and genuinely EXCITING. Hope to see a lot more of it from British media too. Don’t let American companies own British public space, even if it is virtual!
