Zuckerberg does a Reddit

Mark Zuckerberg is taking a leaf out of the Reddit playbook.

On Nov. 6, he is up for a bit of scrutiny by Facebook users — they can ask him any question they like.

Zuckerberg is obliging Facebook’s 1.3 billion-strong community in an online exchange inspired by Reddit, an entertainment-cum-news website that encourages users to submit self-generated content.

Reddit was one of the pioneers of an online exchange format in which users post questions that are answered by the intended party on the same platform.

Bill Gates has been one of the Reddit respondents.

With Community Q&A, Zuckerberg is opening Facebook to increased transparency, according to TechCrunch, an industry website.

The hour-long livestreamed session will answer the public’s questions submitted to Zuckerberg’s page.

People can submit their queries in the comments on Zuck’s Post, or Like ones to vote for the questions they want answered.

They range from serious questions about Facebook’s investments to Zuckerberg’s personal opinions, but also include common gripes about Facebook’s product and silly jokes.

But we’ll have to wait a few days to find out what this idea is going to be like.
