Senior White House adviser David Plouffe posted a video explaining how the public can ask questions through Google+ and other social networks after the State of the Union. Schulman said the White House is particularly excited about Google+’s Hangout feature, which allows live video chats with up to 10 participants.
“On our Google+ page, we’ll host regular ‘White House Hangouts’ with administration officials on a range of issues and topics. Some Google+ users will be invited to join the Hangout with the White House and have a conversation with policy experts,” Schulman said.
“But the best part is that even if you’re not ‘in’ the Hangout, you can watch the whole thing live on WhiteHouse.gov, on our Google+ page or on the White House YouTube channel.”
More than 6,000 users had added the White House to their circles or network on Google+ at the time of this post.
