If you want to see President Obama's latest foray into social media, make sure you tune in to the White House's Google+ page today at 5:30pm ET -- the president will be hosting his first Google+ hangout.

If you want to see President Obama's latest foray into social media, the president will be hosting his first Google+ hangout tonight at 5:30pm ET. Unfortunately, it won't be a live free-for-all discussion; President Obama will be answering questions that were submitted over the last few weeks via YouTube; rather than the White House hand-picking questions, Google will be choosing from the top-rated submissions. However, there will still be five Americans joining the conversation through the Google+ hangout, though it's not exactly clear how those lucky participants were chosen. To see how this compares to the president's previous social media chats on Facebook and Twitter, just head over to the White House's Google+ page tonight, and remember that the hangout is starting earlier than the previously-announced 9pm start time.
