Obama’s flutter with flickr

In this modern age of online social networking and photo sharing.  President Obama’s administration is sharing official photographs via flickr.

Now don’t be mistaken.  This isn’t some kind of cheap PR gimmick to make up for this.  Rather its the sign of the times as governments and corporations start to use some of the most popular websites to share information.  They are merely demonstrating what we’ve known for a few years now, websites that allow you to share photos with family and friends can be used to share photos with just about anybody really…

New government is all about connecting with as many people in the most effective ways possible.  At times, those methods may seem unothadox to some although I suspect they are here to stay.
