Barack Obama, the man at the helm of the most powerful country in the world, President of the United States isthis week going to... "hang out".
In keeping with the predictions we made last week that Google+ would actually reap the rewards this year, The White House has decided to test the water of the Social Media colossus this week and answer questions on his State of the Union address in a video chatroom.
People have been asked to submit their questions to youTube, where the public will vote for their favourite questions. The president will then answer the questions over the course of the chat next Monday (30/01/2012).
You will be able to view the chat via the Google+ White House page or from the official website at whitehouse.gov.
How long do you think it will be before British polotics catches up with the Social Media rise?
