Obama to 'hang out' in live video chat room

By BETH FOUHY

The Associated Press

NEW YORK President Barack Obama plans to "hang out" in a video chat room to answer questions about his State of the Union address, part of a White House effort to test new social networking tools and the latest evidence of the growing intersection of social media and politics.

Google Inc. announced Monday that Obama will participate in a 45-minute live video chat room known as a "Hangout," part of the online search giant's social networking site Google Plus. The chat will take place Monday afternoon, Jan. 30, capping a week of social media engagement the White House is planning around the State of the Union speech.

Obama speaks to Congress and the nation on Tuesday.

Google Plus will solicit questions over the video sharing site YouTube, and users will then vote on their favorites. The president will answer some video questions, and will also chat directly with a group of the questioners.

5. So true. And a 9 second delay!

I remember "chatting" with Carlos Santana in the early days of AOL. I thanked him sincerely for turning me onto blues, jazz and latin music!
