White House on Tumblr: Administration creates official page on blogging site

PHOENIX - The White House has officially joined Tumblr , and it's promising exclusive GIFs.

The administration's page on the popular blogging service posted its first update Friday afternoon.

The update included a chart mapping out plans to post animated GIFs, photos, videos, behind the scenes info, infographics and even some posts on the "First Dog" Bo.

"We see some great things here at the White House every day," the post reads, "and sharing that stuff with you is one of the best parts of our job. That's why we're launching a Tumblr."

The post goes on to promise "wonky charts" because those "are actually kind of exciting."

The page is also asking for user submissions like questions and personal stories.

Finally, the post concludes with a promise of the easily-consumable images that the Internet has come to love.

"And yes," the White House writes, "of course there will be GIFs."
