Today at 2:30 p.m. ET, President Obama will hold his YouTube interview. During the interview, President Obama will field questions submitted via the YouTube Worldview
channel. Users have been able to submit questions since Tuesday, following Obama’s State of the Union Address. The interview is just one of a series of interactive discussions that the Obama Administration has put forth this week in support of the address, including a panel discussion with several administration officials directly following the address, a Twitter interview with Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and a Yahoo interview Friday with Joe Biden.
In addition to the President’s interview, there will be several discussions held today that will be viewable on the White House’s official stream before and after the Obama’s interview. These discussions will involve several key officials discussing different issues and fielding questions via Facebook.
This is just one of many times that the Obama Administration has used social media to directly address the public. Last year, President Obama also held a YouTube Interview where he answered questions voted on by YouTube users. This year’s barrage, however, is perhaps the most the administration has used the medium to interact with citizens and speak about key issues.
Question submissions for today’s interview have been closed, but if you want to see the live Q&A session, you can view it at the YouTube Worldview page or at the White House’s official stream.
