Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that he will be holding his first live Q&A session soon, entirely on Facebook Live.
While the executive held many Q&A sessions to date, none of them were live, online, for everyone to watch.
The upcoming Facebook Live Q&A session is planned for Tuesday, June 14 at 11:30 a.m. PT/ 2:30 p.m. ET.
"We can cover all the big areas you're interested in - connecting the world, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, live video, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and more," says Zuckerberg.
To streamline the whole process, Zuckerberg asked interested users to leave their questions in a comment to his post, and he will answer the ones that get the most likes.
Based on the questions users submitted so far, the upcoming Q&A is shaping up to be quite interesting. The question with the most likes at the time of writing tackles important issues such as global warming, the future of humanity, the possibility of migrating to another planet, or how Zuckerberg perceives the world in which he'd like to raise his kids.
Other questions that proved popular so far also include more mundane concerns related to technology. One user would like to know when the highly anticipated WhatsApp video calling feature will finally become available. Another user, meanwhile, asks when it will be possible to schedule a Facebook Live event and invite people to attend so the audience is ready before the stream actually starts.
Some users would like to have a search option to easily find their own posts on their timeline, or to find specific posts in their news feeds. Business propositions are apparently on the table as well: one user says he'd like to talk about a new device that would "change the world of electronic systems," bringing the digital age to markets such as Africa or Haiti. The user further claims the device is the first of its kind and it's energy-efficient, and having Facebook as a sponsor would help turn it into a real product.
Zuckerberg's post already has 1.5 million views, 73K likes and reactions and 10K comments, with more surfacing each minute. Obviously, not all questions will get an answer, but Zuckerberg promises to tackle as many queries as he can in the upcoming Q&A.
If you have a burning question you'd like to ask one of the richest men in the world, get on board with Zuckerberg's Facebook Live Q&A and if you get enough votes (read: likes) maybe you'll get an answer.
