President Obama to Host Google+ Hangout
Health Practitioners Need to Be On Google+. The White House announced on Monday its plans to follow up with President Obama's Tuesday State of the Union Address with a virtual “State of the Union interview,” which will be conducted using a Google+ hangout.
The president signed up for a personal Google+ account on Friday.
With the President of the United States joining the millions of people on this new social media network, Google+ is now officially a big deal.
Practitioners who are not on Google+ yet should consider this announcement the motivation to sign up and get their Google+ presence started.
The amount of publicity this event will generate will likely increase the Google+ user base dramatically. Practitioners may also want to tune in to the event in order to get some pointers for managing a Google+ hangout.
The Obama administration is praising the event as “the first completely-virtual event from the White House.” According to a White House blog post, President Obama will be answering questions submitted through the White House's YouTube channel.
It is not yet clear whether questions will be selected through a moderator or whether users will be able to question the president directly. It is also not clear who will be able to join the Google+ hangout, although those who cannot will likely be able to follow the event via the White House's video page.
