Obama has made a pretty important announcement by using Social Media. I enjoyed this comment: “Change happens at the grassroots”. It’s unclear what he plans are, but it looks like he’s doing an exploratory program. You can view all of Obama’s videos on YouTube on his YouTube profile page.
With YouTube and many other websites, there’s already a community formed, users can subscribe, leave comments, and ‘interact’. The conversation goes both two ways. Speaking of conversations, there’s quite a few other discussions happening at memorandum, the conversation tracker for political blogs.
More politicians are using Social Media to get their word out, I’m waiting to see how the other political party will respond using the web.
Update: I’ve learned that Obama used a few other service to create and distribute his message, YouTube is just one of the mediums.
