The White House has joined social networking site


"The White House will share pins and boards that range from inspiring images and quotes to infographics that help explain key issues to details about the life inside the White House," Kori Schulman, director of online engagement for the Office of Digital Strategy, wrote in a Saturday blog post.

According to Politico, the site allows users to 'pin' photos and text onto a publicly viewable webpage.

It's part of the stated White House strategy of engagement across a wide variety of digital platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Flickr, the report said.

The White House explained that the holiday season was an 'especially exciting' time for them to join the social networking site, where many users share recipes, photos and holiday tips.

The White House will also host a live, in-person social event for some of their followers on the network.

"Pinners will be invited to check out the decor, meet with the people that helped transform the White House for the holidays, join us for a craft project," Schulman explained. (ANI)
