2015 in Review: The White House’s Year on Facebook

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, we’re taking a look back at our year on Facebook. We’re always looking for new ways to engage with the American public, and this year we spoke with more Americans on Facebook than ever before.

We reached more than 5.3 million followers on the White House Facebook page. We answered questions from the public on how we can welcome refugees while ensuring the safety and security of Americans; on the President signing into law a bipartisan bill to revise and replace No Child Left Behind; and on the President’s actions to promote rehabilitation and integration for the formerly incarcerated. And, the President even launched his own Facebook page to have real conversations with the American people about the most important issues facing our country.

To engage with us on these and many other important issues, follow the White House on Facebook at facebook.com/WhiteHouse and President Obama at facebook.com/POTUS. And take a look back at these 12 important moments from the White House and President Obama on Facebook in 2015:


“The single-most powerful word in our democracy is the word ‘we.’ We the People. We shall overcome. Yes we can. That word is owned by no one. It belongs to everyone. Oh, what a glorious task we are given, to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.” — President Obama: http://go.wh.gov/Selma-speech #Selma50 #MarchOn
From the Obama family to yours, Happy Easter!
“Today, after two years of negotiations, the United States, together with our international partners, has achieved something that decades of animosity has not — a comprehensive, long-term deal with Iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” — President Obama: http://go.wh.gov/IranDeal #IranDeal
