Facebook CEO and Co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is coming to India and will be hosting the next town hall Q&A in Delhi on 28th October at the Indian Institute of Technology.

The net neutrality debate in India had brought a heated negative review from the users and was dissed by the audience. Nevertheless, Facebook has time and again tried making amends and this time Zuckerberg has the objective set in his head.

On his Facebook post, Zuckerberg stated, “I’m looking forward to hearing directly from one of our most active and engaged communities.”

The assignment is now subtly renamed as ‘Free basics”  that will bring online services to the users without internet.  With more than 130M Facebook users in the country, India is most definitely a growing market on the social network and the largest Facebook user base outside the US.

In the last week of September, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi visited the Facebook HQ for a town hall question and answer session that covered the social and economic challenges faced.

The pattern of the session will be similar to the last one. Questions to the social mogul can be asked on his Facebook post by commenting and to vote for a question, the user needs to ‘like’ the question. The event will be posted on his page in the form of a live-video.
