‘Hangout’ With President Obama Next Monday

The President is on the Internets again. This time, he’s doing a Google+ Hangout, answering questions during a live Q&A next Monday, January 30 at 5:30 ET. Questions will come from YouTube users and can be submitted here.

While the President has been an active social media user for the purposes of these sorts of Q&A sessions, GOP candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have actually done hangouts before Obama.

Obama joined Google+ in November. The White House announced it had joined Google+ on Friday.

Separately, senior advisors to the White House will be available after tomorrow’s State of the Union address to answer questions about the speech on Twitter, Facebook, and at live tweet ups. Experts will be available to answer questions on Twitter on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. More info about those events here.
