Add the White House to those who are using social media to encourage the FCC to reclassify Internet access under Title II regulations. And the President's message to the FCC is pretty specific: Title II reclassification, apply network neutrality regs to mobile broadband and prevent paid prioritization.

The White House is featuring network neutrality prominently on its home page, including the video President Obama made promoting Title II, the same plan expanded upon in a statement on virtual White House letterhead, and a request to spread the word via social media.

"President Obama is asking the FCC to keep the Internet open and free. Help spread the word—share his plan with your friends and followers," says the White House, then directing readers to use the featured "Facebook" and Twitter" buttons.
