George W. Bush to answer questions from Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook users

November 29, 2010 |  8:50 am

Decision George W. Bush will become the first president to answer questions live on Facebook when he visits the California headquarters of the social media company on Monday. 

The Q&A session, called Facebook Live, will begin at 2 p.m. PST and be moderated by Facebook’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. Users can submit their questions here.

It’s part of a book tour promoting Bush’s memoir “Decision Points,” which has sold more than 1 million copies. Bush launched his Facebook page earlier this year and has more than 600,000 followers. Facebook Live launched in August.

On Cyber Monday, President Bush will visit Facebook headquarters to discuss his book and take questions from Facebook users and employees. Tune into Facebook Live ( to watch a live stream of the event on Monday, November 29, at 5:00 pm EST.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently visited Facebook's Palo Alto HQ, where he declared himself “Mayor of Facebook” for a day on his page. No word yet on if Bush will seek to claim the presidency, though we think it’s unlikely.  He’s pledged to step out of the spotlight once his book tour is over.
