On Thursday, September 8, Oprah Winfrey will be undergoing a Facebook live chat to revive her website, Oprah.com, which has seen a significant decline in users since the end of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

According to MSNBC, Oprah will answer questions during the one hour event, and it "coincides with Winfrey's big tech industry meet-up at the home of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg with Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and other big names from the online world to figure out how to boost traffic to Winfrey's faltering website, Oprah.com.”

The New York Post reports that the event will stream live with Oprah learning about the future of the internet, as well as how to use social media in a beneficial way.

The event will include executives from Oprah’s Harpo television production company, and the publishing house which publishes her Oprah magazine, Hearst. Top technology players such as Demand Media’s Richard Rosenblatt and LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner will also be in attendance.

The former “queen of daytime” has been staying on top of her social media outlets lately, such as posting pictures of her office on Twitter, posting status updates on Facebook and responding to her fans’ questions.
