Interesting use of social networking . . . but this isn’t an endorsement yet.

Barack Obama on LinkedIn

So I got an update on my LinkedIn account and there was a very interesting question posted (LinkedIn allows you to post questions to people in your network).  Presidential candidate Barack Obama posed the question, “How can the next president help better help small business and entrepreneurs thrive?” I thought this was a great way to tap into social networking in order to get people (voters) thinking about the issues and to generate some interest in his campaign. It got me to click on Barack’s profile, where there is info on his campaign, etc. (see screen shot above). Nice to see a candidate intelligently-leveraging a technology/service I use everyday.
