Looks like Facebook has something up its sleeves this year. In its first major press event at its Menlo Park, California headquarters since its public offering, the company invited the media to “Come and see what we’re building.”
With such a cryptic message, it sent tech observers guessing as to what would be revealed, from a rumored Facebook phone to a search engine. 2012 has been a good year for Facebook, becoming a publicly traded company, acquiring Instagram, and a boatload of new features. Despite a less than optimal public offering, the company is slowly regaining steam.
Speculation on a Facebook phone have been publicly dismissed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, while he mentions that search would be ripe for growth. However, observers feel that the company will merely be expanding on its search capabilities instead of a full-fledged search engine to rival Google. Whatever the case may be, a new phone or a new feature, we will keep you updated.
