At the White House, we’re always looking for new ways to engage with citizens online – and 2013 was no exception. As 2013 comes to an end, it's time to look back at some of our favorite online moments of the past year.
This year, President Obama answered your questions about housing on Zillow.com, and connected directly with Americans from around the country during a Fireside Hangout on Google+ after his State of the Union Address. In her first ever Twitter Q&A, the First Lady answered questions about Let's Move! and healthy living in 140 characters.
In 2013, the White House joined Tumblr, Instagram and started sharing six-second videos on Vine. It’s also been a big year on Twitter – with new official accounts for the First Lady, Dr. Biden and many more White House officials to engage on issues including the economy, foreign policy and immigration reform. We continued to open the doors of the White House by inviting folks from all over to join our first-ever White House hackathon and Instagram meet up.
Take a look at some of our favorite online moments below or over on Storify. And stay tuned for opportunities to engage with President Obama and the White House in the New Year by following us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Tumblr.
