Also In the News: Congress gets its own YouTube channel

Congress launched official YouTube channels this week where members of the House and Senate can post videos of floor speeches, hearings or ribbon-cuttings, according to news reports.

On YouTube, members of Congress can create and control their videos on a House hub and a Senate hub, which help YouTube users find their representatives via a Google Map, the Washington Post reported today.

YouTube, owned by Google, which has a growing presence in Washington, has hosted “YouTube 101” sessions with congressional staff members, many in their 20s and quite familiar with the site. In some instances, young, Web-savvy staffers are the ones pushing their bosses to get online, according to the report.
