Yesterday, being 10th of August 2016, White House unveiled a Facebook Messenger bot to enable facebook account users to Send Obama a Facebook Message. The brain behind this is for the citizens can share their thoughts with the administration as easily as they could message their close friends on Facebook.
Already its clear that in 2015 there was a release of Obama’s official Twitter ID (@POTUS) and his wife, the Fist Lady released a Snapchat ID for easy communication with the country people.
As a matter of fact this is first of its kind for any government, to have a facebook page where people can chat and communicate to the President directly.
The White House Chief Digital Officer Jason Goldman while unveiling the White House facebook ID, about the new Messenger bot, that It’s about creating opportunities for people to engage with their government in new and accessible ways, using the same technologies we already rely on in our daily lives.
How you can Now Send Obama a Facebook Message
To message the president, click on “Message” on the White House Facebook page, which will open the Messenger bot window. The bot mentions that the president will read 10 of these messages a night — a daily routine with handwritten letters that Obama implemented since taking office in 2009, and a presidential tradition that dates back to Thomas Jefferson. It is unclear if the Facebook messages will be in a category of their own for the President to read.

I think its also important for other Presidents around the world to emulate some most of this features in other to create a god and close rage communication with their people, and know that’s in their mind.
