Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be conducting first of its kind Q&A with users

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced in a blog post that come next Thursday, he will sit down and answer questions that users of the social network want him to answer. This is the first time that the young billionaire will be holding such a Q&A on the website.
However, it works a tad differently to the usual Q&As or Reddit ‘Ask Me Anythings’ which we are familiar with. Those who wish to pose questions to Zuckerberg must visit this Facebook page and post them there. If they don’t have a question of their own, they can Like other people’s inquiries to make them more visible.

Mark Zuckerberg will then answer these questions on a livestream, a video of which will be posted afterwards. This livestream is scheduled to commence on November 6 at 2pm PT.
Funnily enough, the question with the most Likes right now goes ‘Why you forced us to install Facebook messenger?’ While we’re quite certain that the Facebook CEO will choose to not answer this one, we’d be pleased if he proves us wrong.

Although this will be the first time Zuckerberg will be interacting like this with users of the world’s biggest social network, he regularly holds similar Q&A discussions with his employees. These private discussions are meant to let the staff build a better rapport with higher authorities in the company.
The Facebook head has recently turned to becoming quite an active CEO. In October, he paid a visit to India as part of the Internet.org initiative, while a few days ago, he was also spotted speaking Mandarin during an interaction with students from China.
