By David Cohen Comment

President Barack Obama will participate in an intimate, cozy town-hall meeting, with a small group of more than 500 million potential attendees — a special Facebook Live gathering Wednesday, April 20, at 4:45 p.m. ET/1:45 p.m. PT.

Obama will be at the social network’s headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, where he will answer selected questions from Facebook users, which can be submitted via the page linked above or via the White House website.

During the one-hour event, according to Facebook, “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.”
