White House Social Media Gaffe

Social media can be pretty damaging to your communication message when you make these kinds of errors. The White House social media team seems to have made a serious mistake today when uploading a photo on the official Whitehouse Facebook feed.

The White House website posted a photo of President Obama with a family from Ohio. The caption reads, “President Barack Obama helps spell out “Ohio” with the Weithman family, Rachel, 9, Josh, 11, and mom Rhonda, in their home in Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2010.”

Ohio

The Facebook feed posted a photo of President Obama and Governor Arnold Swartzenager with a very different caption. It reads, “President Barack Obama helps sell out “Ohio” with the Weithman family, Rachel, 9, Josh, 11, and mom Rhonda, in their home in Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2010.”

I wonder if someone is getting fired today.
