Facebook on Wednesday sent around invitations for a November 15 press event in San Francisco. |
The social-networking site provided few details about what might be discussed except to say that "this special event is in advance of Mark Zuckerberg's conversation on 11/16 at Web 2.0 Summit."
Zuckerberg will appear at the Web 2.0 conference Tuesday at 4:50pm; the conference agenda did not specify what he will talk about; it is being billed as "a conversation with Mark Zuckerberg." The summit is an invite-only event that will also feature appearances by Google's Eric Schmidt, Yahoo's Carol Bartz, RIM's Jim Balsillie, Adobe's Shantanu Narayen, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, and Twitter's Ev Williams.
Naturally, rumors about what Facebook might announce have been making the rounds. Given that the invitation includes an image of Facebook's iPhone inbox icon, TechCrunch speculated that it might be related to Facebook's fabled Project Titan webmail effort.
During its last event, Facebook unveiled "Groups" and announced that users would be able to download their Facebook information. An August press conference, meanwhile, included the launch of Facebook Places.
