CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the world+dog that he would unveil something “awesome” today and at this point there is plenty of speculation to go around.
Some punters expect Facebook to introduce a new iOS app, project Spartan or something completely different. One interesting rumour is that Facebook will announce a partnership with Skype. It is said that the deal could allow Facebook to provide browser based video chat capabilities for the masses.
Google+ already offers a similar service dubbed Hangouts, so it makes sense for Facebook to counter the newcomer to the social networking world.
Then again, we will have a formal announcement by the end of the day and we would not be surprised to see a few more “awesome” announcements ahead of the planned IPO.
