Long gone are the days of sending your favorite role models fan mails in the post. Aside from tweeting them, now you can send a message to the White HouseÂ viaÂ Facebook Messenger.
Messengerâ€™s VP of Product David Marcus announced a White House bot today onÂ his Facebook page;Â the botÂ lets you send a note to the President â€“ anything from compliments, critiques, orÂ questions. President Obama currently reads 10 of these select messages every night, but that includes traditionalÂ notes as well.
The White Houseâ€™s Chief Digital Officer JasonÂ Goldman says the move aims to open up opportunities for people to reach the President. Itâ€™s the same reason why theÂ @POTUS Twitter and the First Ladyâ€™s Snapchat accounts were created.
Thereâ€™s no guarantee of a response, but if your question is interesting enough you just might make the cut for a reply from POTUS. Old school methods such as faxes and letters are still accepted, though, ifÂ you still want to send illustrations or handwritten notes.
But if the Messenger route is more convenient for you, you can do soÂ here.
