Facebook: Barack Obama wants to regain young voters – Having about 18 million friends on his Facebook fanpage, US-president Barack Obama may try to take advantage of the impact of social media again for his upcoming re-election in 2012.
Therefore, a special Town Hall meeting at the Facebook headquarter was installed, where Obama had a meet and greet with several young voters as well as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
After a friendly and euphoric reception and kind words of Zuckerberg, one thing was ovious right away:
Many young Americans are still disappointed by President Barack Obama, who promised greater transparency and more influence on Washington politics in his last campaign.

„We have already achieved a lot“ Obama announced almost imploringly. „The economy is recovering, health reform is coming – and we continue to invest in clean energy“.
