Hot on the heels of the Google+ announcement, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently told reporters his company is planning to “launch something awesome” next week. Speculation around the announcement primarily surrounds the mobile or tablet space, though Zuckerberg didn’t reveal specific details.
Over the past few weeks, there has been speculation about various mobile products that may or may not be in development at Facebook, including the release of an application designed specifically for Apple’s iPad. Another possibility would be a specialized application that enables photo-sharing from the iPhone.
Zuckerberg did reveal that the new project has been developed at Facebook’s Seattle office. In the past, the Seattle office has been responsible for many of the company’s mobile efforts. The office played a central role in the development of Facebook’s unified mobile site.
