Mark Zuckerberg will answer your questions for one hour next week

New, 8 comments

Mark Zuckerberg's not afraid of you, internet. The Facebook CEO has announced that he'll participate in a public Q&A session next Thursday afternoon, answering questions submitted and voted on by the social network's own users. Facebook holds its own internal Q&A each Friday, according to Zuckerberg, a forum that gives employees a frequent opportunity to ask the CEO anything they'd like. "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 wrote on his Facebook wall today. "I learn a lot from these Q&As, and the questions people ask help us build better services."

Now he wants to hear from Facebook's users, and considering 1.35 billion people are actively using the service each month, there's really no telling what questions might come up. You can submit your own here and like others that you want to hear Zuckerberg answer. But please: no matter how important your question, don't mess up and ask it on his original wall post. Zuck's not afraid to shut people down, as Mike Isaac of The New York Times learned.

Thus far leading questions include "Who is your celebrity crush?" and "Why you forced us to install Facebook messenger?" But there's still a week to go, everybody, so put your brain to work and ask something that no one's ever asked the man before. Zuckerberg says the Q&A will last about an hour and he'll try to blast through as many questions as possible in that time.
