Going Live

The White House was once merely the subject of live chat tools on Facebook, such as the CNN/Facebook feed that attracted many users of the site during the Inauguration, because friends could make comments on the ceremony as they watched the webcast live.

Now in "Joining the discussion at," the administration is announcing the progress of its own Facebook application, where citizens can provide input as they watch streaming video from official Executive Branch sources. The site promises that it will broadcast "all kinds of White House events, from press conferences with the President to concerts in the East Room" in addition to hosting "Open for Questions" sessions, which "are hosted about once a week," when "administration officials answer questions from the public in a live, online video chat."
