Adesso Barack Obama è ufficialmente su Facebook. Anche il Presidente degli Stati Uniti sbarca sul social network più utilizzato del mondo con un profilo personale, denominato “President Obama“. In realtà una pagina “ufficiosa” dedicata al numero uno degli USA esisteva già sul social network per eccellenza, e contava ben 45 milioni di likes, ma è tutt’ora gestita dai suoi sottoposto alla Casablanca e non da lui stesso. La sua pagina personale, in sole 24 ore, ha già ottenuto oltre 800.000 mi piace.
Questo il primo messaggio di Barack Obama su Facebook:
“Hello, Facebook! I finally got my very own page. I hope you’ll think of this as a place where we can have real conversations about the most important issues facing our country – a place where you can hear directly from me, and share your own thoughts and stories. (You can expect some just-for-fun stuff, too.)
I’m kicking it off by inviting you to take a walk with me in my backyard – something I try to do at the end of the day before I head in for dinner. I say this often, but that’s because it’s always at the front of my mind: We’ve got to preserve this beautiful planet of ours for our kids and grandkids. And that means taking serious steps to address climate change once and for all. Now, we’ve made a lot of progress to cut carbon pollution here at home, and we’re leading the world to take action as well. But we’ve got to do more. In a few weeks, I’m heading to Paris to meet with world leaders about a global agreement to meet this challenge.
I hope you’ll join me in speaking out on climate change and educating your friends about why this issue is so important. At a time when nearly three in four adults online use Facebook, this feels like a great place to do it. Share your thoughts in the comments, and pass this message on to folks you think need to see it.
If we’re all in this together, I’m confident we can solve this and do right by future generations”.
