Nothing as yet has been announced by Facebook or the White House about the time at which the Live session will be held. Unlike last time when Zuckerberg had asked readers to send in questions for his first Live Q&A Zuckerberg, nothing of the sorts has been asked as yet. Presumably, this Live video would be a much more formal one and would be planned in advance.
Facebook has been aggressively promoting its Live video feature and has signed deals with companies and celebrities to create video content. This seems like a great opportunity for the social media platform. Further, peeking in the past, this is not the first time Mark Zuckerberg and Barack Obama came together for discussion. In a town hall style meeting, back in 2011, the US President had visited the Facebook headquarters to participate in the discussion with the company CEO.
