Facebook has been aggressively pushing videos on its platform. As part of this push, Facebook earlier this year launched a live video streaming feature, Facebook Live, which has seen several new improvements in the past few months. In an aggressive effort to promote the tool, Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he will host his first-ever Townhall Q&A on Live, on June 14 at 12:00AM IST).

In a Facebook post, Zuckerberg wrote, “I’m doing my first ever Live Q&A — entirely on Facebook Live — next Tuesday, June 14th at 11:30am PT. 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. 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!” Also Read - Netflix could launch its video game streaming service next year, at no extra cost

Users need to comment on Zuckerberg’s post and vote the questions they want to be addressed. The comments with the most likes will be addressed by the Facebook CEO during the Live Q&A session next week.
Facebook has been recently pushing its Live videos feature. Earlier this month, Facebook hosted a 20-minute live video chat with NASA astronauts Tim Kopra, Jeff Williams, and European Space Agency’s Tim Perke, who are currently onboard on the International Space Station. Along with Live videos, Facebook is also focusing on 360-degree videos. The company has just announced support for 360-degree images on its platform. Moreover, the company is now letting users upload video comments as well.
