Zuckerberg to Host First Q&A on Facebook Live

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will take advantage of his social network’s new tool — Facebook Live — to interact with users next week.

It will be the first time Zuckerberg has used Facebook Live to host one of his regular town hall sessions.

Scheduled for June 14 at 11:30 a.m. PT, Zuckerberg will answer questions from members of the social network.

“When I travel around the world, I like to hold Townhall Q&As with people in different countries. We’ve even held a few at Facebook HQ,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.“Now with Live I can hear from more of our community at once and it’s a lot more interactive. We can cover all the big areas you’re interested in — connecting the world, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, live video, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and more.”

Zuckerberg is asking those who are interested in the one-hour live-streamed event to post questions here and also ‘like’ the queries they would most like him to answer.

Zuckerberg said he will “go through as many as we have time for.”

The Facebook CEO hosted his first Q&A session in November of 2014.

The event was inspired by a tradition held each Friday at Facebook: employees being permitted to ask Zuckerberg questions “about anything they want.”

“It’s an important part of Facebook’s culture. People ask thoughtful questions about why our company is going in certain directions, what I think about things happening in the world, and how we can continue improving our services for everyone,” Zuckerberg said in a 2014 post. “I learn a lot from these Q&As, and the questions people ask help us build better services.”
