President Barack Obama made friends with Facebook in April by holding a town hall event at the social networking company’s Palo Alto headquarters.

On Monday he will return to Silicon Valley for a second town hall event at the home of LinkedIn, the Web’s largest professional networking service.


The president will discuss jobs and field questions about the economy, according to a note on the White House website.

LinkedIn users can post questions for the president on the White House LinkedIn page.

This isn’t the first time Obama has fielded questions on LinkedIn. He did so during his 2008 presidential campaign when social media helped him reach voters.

This visit is part of a three-day West Coast swing with events in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle.
