SAN FRANCISCO - Facebook users are deluging President Barack Obama with questions as he readies for a town hall meeting at the Silicon Valley headquarters of the social media giant.

More than 36,000 users of the site have said they will virtually attend the Wednesday afternoon meeting that will include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The president is expected to answer selected questions submitted by users and read by a moderator.

Video of the event is set to be streamed live over Facebook.

Obama will be the first sitting head of state to visit Facebook's brick-and-mortar home in Palo Alto.

Issues on users' minds run the gamut from gas prices and jobs to the war in Libya and marijuana legalization.
