Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrived in India on Tuesday ahead of his Townhall Q&A at IIT Delhi on Wednesday.
Zuckerberg had announced his India visit earlier this month and had opened the Q&A for questions from netizens inviting questions in the comments section of his post. He asked people to vote for questions they want to be raised by 'liking' it.
While thousands of queries have been mentioned on the post, several IIT Delhi students themselves have a list of questions they hope will be taken up by the Facebook head.
900 of the 8,000 students at the premier institute will be able to participate directly in the Townhall, and some of them have put down questions that may be picked up by Zuckerberg for discussion, The Times of India reported.
Some of the questions that the IIT Delhi students have for Zuckerberg are both technical and personal- "Will FB extend itself as a physical product so that it can interact with devices at home and also connect with social circle?" ; "What technology support will FB provide for Internet.org so that rural and backward areas in the country get access to the internet?" ; and, "What was your Eureka moment that helped you decide to pursue with FB?".
Many questions posted in the comments section of Zuckerberg's Facebook post also focus on the Internet.org initiative, which is now called Free Basics. The initiative has been widely criticised for violating the concept of net neutrality.
Some of the other questions from Facebook users range from how the social media platform can help in the current refugee crisis to how to curb obscenity on the Internet.
Zuckerberg is expected to respond to questions for at least an hour during the Townhall on Wednesday, which begins at 12pm IST (11:30pm Tuesday Pacific time).
A live video of the IIT Delhi Townhall will be shared by Zuckerberg on his Facebook page just before the event.
Zuckerberg visited the Taj Mahal in Agra on Tuesday, posting a picture of him in front of the iconic monument.
"I'm in India for our Townhall Q&A tomorrow, and I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this. It is even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build -- and what love can motivate us to build," he said on his post.
