Facebook Connect Ushers In Obama

Ok...so I know the title is a bit over the top...but you know how I get about Facebook Connect! Getting a sneak peak into the various uses of FBC, CNN live-streamed the inauguration, enabling users to log into their Facebook accounts and share the moment with their FB friends.

There are so many firsts for this presidency...and Obama's "new era of openness" is not only refreshing, it is necessary and oh so timely. Social media, after all, is about just that principle-- openness. Transparency. Authenticity. Listening. Collaboration. GObama!
