WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is meeting with CEOs from leading Internet and technology companies to discuss their concerns about privacy and National Security Agency programs.

The White House says Obama will host the leaders Friday in the Oval Office. The meeting comes two months after Obama gave a speech proposing changes to NSA spying programs following public and industry concern.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings will join the meeting. So will Drew Houston of the file storage site Dropbox and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.

Zuckerberg wrote on his own Facebook page last week that he had called Obama to express his frustration over damage he says the government is creating for everyone's future. Zuckerberg says it seems like it will take a long time for true reform.
