So, what can one say about Mark Zuckerberg? As the man who is the face of Facebook, he certainly has changed social media as we know it. He has a reputation for his town hall-style question and answer sessions all around the world, and he is about to have another one, but this one will be quite different. This is the latest news on Mark Zuckerberg's first Facebook Live Q & A with the start time, where to watch online, as well as how to livestream.
CNET reports that next Tuesday will be the next time that Zuckerberg will host a Q & A via Facebook Live, that live-streaming service that the social network has been promoting lately. It is a good idea to put himself in the spotlight for this service, and it isn't the first time.
Last Wednesday, June 1st, Zuckerberg hosted a 20-minute livestream with the NASA astronauts Tim Kopra and Jeff Williams along with the ESA (European Space Agency's) Tim Peake, who work onboard the ISS. The actual chat can be seen on Engadget here.
This Live service allows people to broadcast a video feed from their phones directly to their Facebook pages. The service is similar and competes with Twitter's Periscope app, and you might have noticed that Facebook has altered its News Feed algorithms to insure that Facebook Live videos are at the top.
As for what Zuckerberg will talk about, he might address the new feature of auto-tagging friends in video. This is the same feature that is used to auto-tag your friends when you take pictures of them. A separate report on CNET reports that Facebook's trending topics controversy about certain conservative news stories and topics are filtered out. By the way, this topic is a trending topic on Facebook, ironically enough.
According to the Facebook official announcement, Zuckerberg himself states: "When I travel around the world, I like to hold Townhall Q&As with people in different countries...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.
