Now You Can Message The White House On Facebook

August 11, 2016

President Obama has taken several steps to connect more closely with the American people via social media. He and Michelle Obama created @POTUS and @FLOTUS Twitter accounts, and the first lady even joined Snapchat.

But if 140 characters aren't enough for what you'd like to say to the president, check out the new option to message the White House on Facebook. Just go to the White House Facebook page, click "message," and a bot will walk you through the steps. Obama reads 10 letters from the public every night.

We were excited to hear about this new option, so we asked some of our Newsy staff what they'd say in a Facebook message to the president.
