Did You Know Barack Obama is on Linkedin?

Posted by on May 9, 2009

I was on linkedin today going through a few things when I saw this:

barrack obama linkedin

I actually had no idea that Obama was on linkedin so naturally I invited him to join my network and clicked on his profile to see if it was really him, and it appears it is.  I’m not sure how many of you knew that Obama was on linkedin but I certainly had no idea.  Here are a few shots of his profile.

Barack Obama has really taken a step towards communicating with people via social media and the world wide web.  This is definitely going to usher in a new wave of communication.  Who would have ever thought you could connect with the president on a platform such as linkedin, watch a video of him addressing the nation on youtube, or follow his updates on twitter.

I think Barack Obama and team are doing a great job with his online and social media presence, I would love to see more interaction and engagement, but hey, they guy has a Country to run right?

What do you think of Obama’s online/social media presence?

  • Yep, his profile appeared during the presidential campaign–when he also “appeared” on Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, and wherever else. Nothing to do with being President, other than an update of his current role. Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John McCain, etc, same story: entered LinkedIn during the campaign season, if not earlier.

  • Upward&Onward

    I think the act (of Obama being on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace etc.,) makes a very bold and forward looking statement. He recognizes the power of these new communication vehicles. I hope Obama and his government use these channels as a source of great ideas and suggestions from ordinary citizens.

    Lift the Blockade of Gaza


    I am writing on behalf of Amnesty International USA with deep concern about the killing by Israeli armed forces of nine activists on ships protesting the blockade on the Gaza Strip.

    While the Israeli government claims that its forces acted in self-defense, it appears clearly that they have used excessive force. The only way to ascertain exactly what happened in a fully credible and transparent manner is to mount an international investigation. It is therefore imperative that the United States supports an international investigation. Israel's proposed Gaza Commission is lacking transparency and unlikely to ensure accountability over the nine deaths of activists.

    The ships in question were reportedly carrying relief supplies to Gaza, which has been under blockade by Israel for the last three years. As a result of the blockade, more than 1.4 million Palestinians are cut off from the outside world and struggling with desperate poverty. To highlight the effects of the blockade on the civilians in Gaza, Amnesty International several months ago mounted a major campaign, “Israel’s blockade of Gaza suffocates daily life.”

    The blockade is a form of collective punishment in contravention of international law. It does not target armed groups but rather punishes Gaza’s entire population by restricting the entry of food, medical supplies, educational equipment and building materials. Unsurprisingly, its impact falls most heavily on those most vulnerable among Gaza’s people: children, the elderly and the sick.

    The Israel cabinet recently announced that the blockade would be eased, allowing more of what it terms “civilian goods” into the impoverished territory where 4 out of 5 people are dependent on international aid. This announcement makes it clear that Israel is not intending to end its collective punishment of Gaza's civilian population, but only ease it. This is not enough. Any step that will help reduce the dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza is to be welcomed, but Israel must now comply with its obligations as the occupying power under international law and immediately lift the blockade.

    We urge you to draw public attention to the suffering of civilians in Gaza and to call on Israel to immediately lift the blockade.

    I'm not sure that LinkedIn is the right site for the President, but he needs to make the public believe that he is one of them still. this is a great way to do it, but it restricts what he can do online, since he has an image to uphold.
