PALO ALTO, Calif - US President Barack Obama sought to reignite the youthful energy that propelled his 2008 election on Wednesday with a campaign-style visit to the nexus of social communications, Facebook.

By visiting Facebook headquarters in California's Silicon Valley, where 26-year-old founder Mark Zuckerberg is a folk hero, Obama sought to connect to tens of millions of people who have adopted social media as a prime method of communications.

"My name is Barack Obama and I'm the guy who got Mark to wear a jacket and tie," the president said, to laughter, at the beginning of a live-streamed town hall event with Zuckerberg.
