Today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will hold his third public Q&A, and he’ll be answering some of users’ most pressing questions.

Zuckerberg will be doing the Q&A in Bogota, Colombia, and the expectation is that he’ll focus a bit more than in past sessions on topics relevant to the social network’s international users. He’ll begin at 1pm PT. If you want to tune in, you can watch live here.

During Zuck’s last Q&A, on December 11, he touched on a number of issues. Perhaps most interesting, responding to someone asking if Facebook would ever add a “dislike” button, he responded that although the company was thinking about people’s interest in such a feature, it would not be doing so because “I don’t think that’s good for the community.”

Zuckerberg also held a public Q&A in November, and another one, in Mandarin, from Beijing, China, in October.

Today, although it’s not yet clear what he’ll address, it’s likely he’ll touch on questions related to translation issues, as well as WhatsApp, video, and probably, organic reach — the question of how many people see Facebook posts through unpaid means. Many Page owners have been upset at Facebook in recent months as the service has neutered organic reach, forcing owners in many cases to pay to have their posts seen.

Please come back for VentureBeat’s coverage of the Q&A.
