President Obama is meeting with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg today while in San Francisco. Gawker reminded me this morning that the President has sort of a complicated relationship with THE Facebook. "On the one hand, college students clicking "like" got him elected in 2008...On the other hand, both he and Michelle have bashed Facebook as a dangerous digital Pied Piper that is Bad For Kids."
Just last week Michelle Obama said about her daughters, "I'm not a big fan of young kids having Facebook… So, you know, it's not something they need. It's not necessary right now." And Barack told a kid during a Q&A that he better watch what he says on Facebook or else he might never be president: "I want everybody here to be careful about what you post on Facebook, because in the YouTube age whatever you do, it will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life."
