If you've always wanted to see the White House gardens but haven't been able to make it out to Washington, DC, you'll soon be able to hop on Instagram for a photographic tour. On Sunday, October 27th, both @WhiteHouse and @MichelleObama will be posting pictures from the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and the South Lawn as part of a White House "InstaMeet." Dubbed the White House Fall Garden Social, the event will be an Instagram meetup with in-person tours of the grounds and pictures shared on Instagram for all those unable to make the event.
The White House has a presence on most major social media sites — from Twitter and Facebook, to Google+, Pinterest, and Tumblr — and has not been afraid to use technology in an attempt to to connect with a wider audience. In the past, the White House has used Twitter to organize "tweetups," encouraging users to interact with the administration using hashtags during events like a holiday meetup or the State of the Union Address. While space at the upcoming garden meetup is limited, Instagram will allow a much larger group of people to digitally join the event and view the grounds, regardless of location.
