The President goes to Palo Alto
And so it begins with a click and a “like”. The last presidential election illuminated the impact social media can have on voter verdicts, and with 2012 looming ever nearer we can only expect this influence to burn brighter.
President Obama in particular was recognized for his campaign’s particular mastery with this medium, a tactic he has continued to employ while in office. Tomorrow the President will host a Facebook town hall from the Facebook’s California headquarters Wednesday at 4:45 pm EDT. Titled “Shared Responsibility and Shared Prosperity,” the town hall is focused on addressing the country’s economic position.
Facebook Town Hall: Wednesday @ 4:45 EST, 1:45 PST
