You can't friend Barack Obama on Facebook, but you can like his page.
The president launched an official White House Facebook page Monday with a video tour of his "backyard" — that being the national park outside the back of the White House.
Obama also added a few life moments to his timeline as well: his birth in 1961, marrying First Lady Michelle Obama in 1992, and a few career milestones along his way to the presidency.

In the two-minute video, Obama talked about the urgency to address climate change. It's a timely message ahead of his trip to Paris in a few weeks, when international negotiators will attempt to reach an accord on curbing greenhouse-gas emissions.
This isn't Obama's first social network. The president officially joined Twitter in May, and he gained more than 1 million followers in just nine hours.
Now a Facebook user, we'll see how many people "like" the president enough to follow him there.
