President Barack Obama likely has a few more "friends" after a town hall at Facebook headquarters that drew questions from site users and the youthful employees of the social media giant.
The president's first question Wednesday came from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who asked Obama about his plan to curb the federal deficit.
Most of the conversation centered on earnest discussion of the president's policies on the economy, immigration, energy and education.
Lighter notes came at the beginning, when Obama joked about the famously informal Zuckerberg wearing a tie. At the end, Zuckerberg presented Obama with a hooded Facebook sweatshirt, the 26-year-old CEO's signature attire.
The event was held on Facebook's Silicon Valley campus before hundreds of employees, along with other politicians and tech industry luminaries.
