President Barack Obama has made an effort to utilize Gov 2.0 tools before (remember his Twitter Town Halls?). This year he will be following up on his State of the Union Address with a live chat (a Hangout) on Google+ on January 30 to answer questions about his State of the Union address tonight:
A team of senior advisors will field questions from Americans about the speech using the Twitter hashtag #WHchat and on the White House Facebook page (which will stream the State of the Union address in an enhanced livestream), followed by the first White House virtual interview with the President via YouTube and Google+ Hangouts.
In this virtual town hall, President Obama will answer some of the public’s most pressing questions and their authors will be invited to join the President in the Hangout in live conversation.
