Obama to Hold Facebook Town Hall

Going back to his roots as a successful Internet campaigner, President Obama will head to Palo Alto, Calif., later this month to hold a town hall about the economy on Facebook.

“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,” the White House announced on Tuesday.


It’s not quite a town hall for all Facebook users.  The social networking site will preselect the questions to be asked during the event, but any user can submit their question at

The event will be streamed live on both that site and at on the afternoon of April 20.
