Obama Admin. Unveils New White House Website, Blog

By Admin on January 22, 2009 9:08 AM

Soon after President Barack Obama took the Presidential oath on Tuesday, his administration launched a new White House website and blog, continuing Mr. Obama's emphasis on online communication and involvement as a presidential candidate, as President-Elect, and now as the 44th President of the United States.

The revamped version of http://www.whitehouse.gov features a new White House Blog, which the new administration will use to further its stated goals of communication, transparency, and participation with the public. According to an early post on the new blog, "WhiteHouse.gov and the rest of the Administration's online programs will put citizens first," including by publishing "all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow[ing] the public to review and comment before the President signs it." Reuters reports that the new White House website also features "an online 'briefing room' and allows visitors to sign up for e-mail updates on major announcements and decisions, and to send in their own ideas."
