If Tuesday's State of the Union speech leaves you with questions, President Barack Obama invites you to ask them next week.
Google announced that Obama plans to take part in a 45 minute live video chat room known as a "Hangout," part of the search engine's social networking site Google Plus. The chat will take place January 30, capping a week of social media engagement the White House is planning around the State of The Union speech.
Google Plus will solicit questions over the video sharing site YouTube, and users will then vote on their favorites. The president will answer some video questions, and will also chat directly with a group of the questioners.
The exchange will appear on the White House Google Plus page, and will be live streamed on the whitehouse.gov website.
Obama participated in YouTube town halls after his last two State of The Union speeches, taking questions submitted to the video sharing site. The planned Hangout goes a step further, offering some of those questioners a chance to interact directly with the president.
The White House says it will not have any part in choosing what questions are asked.
