But I just noticed that he's on LinkedIn also, with 500+ connections (which probably means millions; Linkedin stops counting after 500). In fact, I'm 2 degrees away from him...connected via one of my close friends too! :) No - my friend does not know Obama. Doubt any of the millions connected really know the man personally!
It was possibly a good election time tactic to build up his cult-following - of which yours truly can be said to be a member - but what good does it do to have something so omnipresent in our e-lives now? Perhaps he is thinking of 2012. And given that a large % of people are now online versus watching TV or reading dying newspapers (woe!), perhaps it makes sense to continue with the online presence. Also, why sacrifice a network which has already been built up? The fact that he ..er his team does not add updates to Twitter does tell me it is not the focus of the Obama team any more post-election but that does not stop people from climbing on the bandwagon and becoming the762,933rd follower! (There are 762,932 so far. I am not one of them. Maybe I'll wait till the count gets to 999,999 and if I can time it, become the 1 millionth Obama follower! :))
