Hello, Facebook! Obama gets his social media on

Hello, Facebook!

That’s part of the message that President Obama posted on his first Facebook page on Monday.

“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.),” Obama wrote.

The president then took the opportunity to get behind the issue of climate change.

“I hope you’ll join me in speaking out on climate change and educating your friends about why this issue is so important,” he wrote in his post. “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.”
