Jumpin’ Joe will be getting his G+ on this week.
President Obama’s “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit drew more than 5 million views, and now Vice President Joe Biden is going to try his hand at a different newfangled social-media real-time electronic telegraph technology.
In an event dubbed a “Fireside Hangout,” the vice president will be hanging out in Google+ starting at 10:45 a.m. PT tomorrow to discuss the recently released White House policy recommendations on reducing gun violence in the wake of a downright awful 2012 that was plagued by a number of mass shootings in the United States.
Joining Biden for the 30-minute Hangout will be social-media gurus Guy Kawasaki and Phil DeFranco, with Hari Sreenivasan from “PBS NewsHour” moderating. Hmm, wonder if Biden really knows what he’s got himself into this time?
