Today at 5:30 ET, President Obama will be hosting a Google+ Hang Out town hall meeting.  The President is keeping the trend of utilizing social media and connection to many younger voters with these interactive town hall meetings.  in 2011, Mr. Obama held a Twitter Town Hall, Youtube Town Hall, and a Facebook Town Hall.
