“We’re turning a page on the President’s Facebook account. From now on, Obama 2012 staff will use this account to keep you up to date not just on what the President’s doing every day, but on how millions of supporters around the country are building this campaign,” Obama’s campaign staff wrote on his Facebook page, which counts 21,739,034 likes.
