Today, Pinterest announced that the White House has joined the social network.
According to The White House Blog, “…the White House will share pins and boards that range from inspiring images and quotes to infographics that help explain key issues to details about the life inside the White House.”
On Dec. 17, the White House will kick off its Pinterest presence with a Holiday Social, during which time pinners will get to check out the White House holiday décor, participate in a craft project and “meet” the people that helped transform the White House for the holidays.
Also shared in the blog post, “From the very beginning, President Obama and the First Lady have taken steps to make this the most open White House in history. ‘It’s the People’s House,’ said First Lady Michelle Obama, ‘It’s a place that is steeped in history, but it’s also a place where everyone should feel welcome.'”
