President Barack Obama coming to Facebook on April 20

Obama to hold 'town hall' meeting that will be streamed live online

President Barack Obama will visit Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto April 20, where he will host a "town hall" meeting that will be streamed live on the Internet.

Americans are invited to post questions for the president on the wall of the White House Facebook page or through the White House.

Facebook executives will select questions for Obama to answer during the event, the White House said.

"President Obama will connect with Americans across the country to discuss the tough choices we must all make in order to put our economy on a more responsible fiscal path, while still investing in areas like innovation that will help our economy grow and make America more competitive," the White House said in announcing the event.

To watch, tune in to the White House Facebook page April 20 at 1:45 p.m., the announcement said.

Obama will appear with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, according to the announcement.
