President Barack Obama Is Now On Google+

    November 27, 2011

It’s still unclear if Google+ can ever catch up to Facebook, but they did just gain a very prominent user, the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

The President joined Google+ on Wednesday, and quickly gained a “verified account” notifier. As you might suspect the account isn’t being ran by the President himself, but by his reelection effort.

The President’s first post states:

“Welcome to the Obama 2012 Google+ page. We’re still kicking the tires and figuring this out, so let us know what you’d like to see here and your ideas for how we can use this space to help you stay connected to the campaign.”

President Obama’s arrival on Google+ should be seen as a stamp of approval for the service, as his reelection campaigns sees it as vaiable platform to spread campaign information.
