C-SPAN shows off Foursquare badge

C-SPAN unveiled a Foursquare badge on Friday that users can earn by checking into five of many politically significant locations in Washington.

The public affairs network has been one of the most active media organizations on the location-based social network, leaving numerous tips and historical tidbits at locations around town including the Capitol, the White House and the various Congressional office buildings.

Now users who check into five of those sites can earn the badge. Users may also earn points towards the badge at key political sites nationwide such as locations in New Hampshire and Iowa related to the the early presidential campaign activities.
