Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will hold his next public Q&A on January 14.

In a post today, Zuckerberg said he will host the session, his first “international” Q&A, from Bogota, Colombia, where he will be on behalf of, the non-profit dedicated to bringing the Internet to the “two-thirds of the world not yet connected.”

“These Q&As are an opportunity for you to ask me questions, and for me to hear from you how we can make Facebook better,” Zuckerberg wrote. “This Q&A, I’m looking forward to hearing from more people who use Facebook in Latin America. To ask a question, go to the Q&A with Mark page and just comment on the post. To vote for a question, just like that comment. I’ll answer questions for about an hour and try to get through as many as possible. We will post the video of the Q&A on the page and I’ll post some video highlights here as well.”

Zuckerberg has started holding the Q&As with some frequency. During his last one, on December 11, he addressed the question of whether Facebook would ever add a “dislike” button by saying the company is “thinking” about that demand, but would probably never do so. He hosted another public session in November, and also did one in October from Beijing — in Mandarin.

As he wrote in his post, anyone can ask a question, and according to Facebook, the most popular are likely to be the ones Zuckerberg answers during the session. One can expect, given the location of next week’s Q&A, that he will take on more questions having to do with international issues.

One can also hope that he’ll talk more about the social network’s plans for making video a better and more significant part of the Facebook experience, as well as about other hot topics for the international audience, like WhatsApp and Messenger. No doubt, though, many will want to talk about organic reach.
