Facebook January 15 press event announcement has set the technology world abuzz with the possibilities of what the social networking site might be building. The event is scheduled to be held at the firm’s Menlo Park headquarters and the company has sent the invites via e-mail.
The invite for the Facebook event read, ‘Come and see what we’re building’, thus allowing speculations to run wild about the firm’s intentions. The social networking giant is known to unveil all its products at the headquarters and seems to be following the trend.
The development yet to be announced is debated to be mostly on the software side, but there can be some surprises. Microsoft had earlier entered the hardware sector through its Surface tablet. With CES 2013 Vegas taking major attention of the technology lovers, this might be Facebook’s own way of attracting the users’ to its creation.
Rumours about a Facebook phone have also been going around, though the firm’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg has already discarded the notion of the smartphone. The social networking giant’s previous gathering in November led to the announcement of the partnership with many retail owners for its Gifts application.
Since the invite reads, ‘What we’re building’, it suggests that Facebook is still in the process of creating the new offering. In a similar event, Facebook revealed a partnership with Skype, announcing the start of video chat for the service. What do you think Facebook could be building?
