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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
