Obama Will Host Google Hangout After State of the Union Address

social networks, social media, barack obama, google, google plus, hangoutsPresident Obama will take questions about his Tuesday State of the Union speech using a Google Hangout.

The Hangout is scheduled for Thursday at 4:50 Eastern. The president will be joined by “a group of people who regularly discuss important issues of the day online.”

SocialTimes must have misplaced its invitation, alas. But regular folks can submit questions or vote up previously submitted questions we’d like to hear answered on the White House YouTube channel. The deadline is Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

It’s a coup for a technology company when the president chooses to use your product to engage with constituents, and Google seems to be the president’s go-to service.

Obama hosted a similar Hangout after last year’s State of the Union. He’s done interviews on Google+ and YouTube at least once a year starting in 2010.
