Facebook invites media to ‘come and see what we’re building’

9 Jan 2013

The invitation Facebook has sent to the media

Social networking giant Facebook has something up its sleeve, but it won’t reveal what it is until a press event at its Menlo Park, California, headquarters on 15 January.

“Come and see what we’re building,” reads the invitation sent to the press.

Several reports have put forth the possibility Facebook may unveil a Facebook phone. The Wall Street Journal blog reports the company has worked with handset manufacturers to design the devices.

Other possible reasons for Facebook’s press event include the launch of some sort of other product, the result of a partnership, or the unveiling of a redesign. Whatever it is, it is expected to be big, considering Facebook rarely holds such events at its headquarters.
