Just a few days after joining Google+, President Obama isn't wasting any time before interacting with the new social base. Monday morning, The White House announced that the President will be holding a special post-State of the Union Hangout, where he will answer user-submitted questions.

The State of the Union address is set for Tuesday, January 24th and the special Google+ Hangout will take place on January 30th.

In the first completely-virtual interview from the White House, President Obama will answer questions that have been submitted by Americans from across the country via YouTube. The virtual event with the President will happen through Google+ Hangouts, a live multi-person video chat.

On Monday, January 30, the President will join a special Google+ Hangout from the West Wing. He'll be answering several of the most popular questions that have been submitted through YouTube, and some of the people who submitted questions will even be invited to join the President in the Hangout and take part in the live conversation

When the White House first joined Google+, they announced that staff members and experts would be answering user questions directly following the State of the Union, but the fact that this is all culminating with a Hangout with Obama himself is big news.

You can submit your questions to the White House YouTube channel until January 28th.

I guess the White House saw the latest figures that said Google+ has skyrocketed to 90+ million users. They also announced that Obama's Weekly video address will be broadcast through Google+.
