President Obama to Hold Facebook Town Hall Meeting

ABC News Radio (WASHINGTON) -- From Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, California, President Obama will hold a “Facebook Live” online town hall on April 20.

Everyone is invited to the meeting, but there’s no need to travel to California to participate. That’s because the meeting will be taking place completely on the Internet and will be streamed live on Facebook and on the White House website.

Participants can post questions for the president on the event’s Facebook wall, and Facebook will be selecting questions during the event.

For those who don’t have a Facebook account, the White House also has a form on its website that people can use to submit questions.

The White House says the economy and the budget are the focus of the town hall.

“The President will connect with Americans across the country to discuss the tough choices we must all make to put our economy on a more responsible fiscal path, while still investing in the innovation economy that makes America more competitive,” says the announcement posted on Facebook Tuesday.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg will join the president at the meeting.
