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.
