If you've always wondered if Mark Zuckerberg has a favorite hoodie, or a favorite programming language, now's your chance to find out.

Facebook's chief will host his first community Q&A next Thursday at 5 p.m. Eastern, giving the public a chance to ask any questions they might have for him.

The event will be livestreamed and last about an hour. It expands on the internal Q&A sessions that Zuckerberg holds each Friday with Facebook employees.

The event is structured similar to an "Ask Me Anything" Q&A on Reddit, but could draw considerably more attention given that it involves the CEO of one of the most used services on the Internet.

You can submit questions now as comments on the event's Facebook page, and also "like" questions posted by others.

More than a thousand questions had already been posted within an hour of the announcement Thursday. They touch on everything from privacy, to Facebook's requirement that you download Messenger, to the absence of a "dislike" button, to Zuckerberg's thoughts about Twitter.

Some were quite forward-looking. "How will artificial intelligence or AI play into the future of social networks and infrastructure, like our roads and even health delivery systems?" one person asked.

Others had more frivolous, but still vexing, questions. "How many Instagrams are in a kilogram?" a person wanted to know.

Digital Transformation (DX) has been a critical topic for business over the last few years and IDC is now predicting a step change as DX reaches macroeconomic levels. By 2020 a DX economy will emerge and it will become the core of what New Zealand industries focus on.

Top 15 Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017

​The New Year brings the usual new round of humdrum technology predictions, glaringly general, unashamedly safe and perpetually predictable. But while the industry no longer sees value in “cloud is now the norm” type projections, value can be found in following developments of the year previous, analysing behaviours and patterns to formulate a plan for the 12 months ahead. Consequently, here’s the top Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017...
