See the White House through a New Lens

We are proud that President Obama is committed to giving Americans an unfiltered look at life inside the White House, but you can't always go #nofilter. This morning, the White House posted its first photo on Instagram, an image of the First Family taking off on Marine One for their trip to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania.

Follow @WhiteHouse and @MichelleObama from your phone or computer to experience the White House in photos and be sure to stay tuned for upcoming chances to engage. 

And over the next few days, folks on Instagram will be able to follow the President and First Lady on their trip to Africa—you won’t want to miss it.
