Whitehouse.gov gets a new look!
In the midst of all the inauguration events happening yesterday, you may have missed the unveiling of the new web site for the White House. The new site went live yesterday around the same time Barack Obama took his oath as our 44th President of the United States.
The new White House web site displays a new look and feel, includes a Blog feature which has been actively updated since its launch, contains video from his train trip to Washington, and has an introduction written by Macon Phillips, Director of New Media for the White House, which explains the changes to Whitehouse.gov.
From Macon Phillips' introduction to the new site, there will be three main priorities for the White House new media efforts: Communication, Transparency, and Participation. From the new web site, you can take advantage of signing up for the blog RSS feed, and sign up for e-mail updates from the President and his administration.
The new web site navigation looks very clean and easy to use, and there is a Search feature built into the site to locate content you can't find right away. The home page displays a nice picture slideshow, capturing photos of the new First Family and the White House. If you haven't already seen the new WhiteHouse.gov web site, go check it out!
