Every now and then, Facebook holds an event called f8, where it presents developers and entrepreneurs with the social network’s latest and greatest. At last year’s f8 in San Francisco, Facebook announced timeline to the world. According to AllThingsD, there won’t be an event this year, although Facebook will neither confirm nor deny this.
However, a Facebook spokesperson was noncommittal to AllFacebook when asked about f8:
Facebook hasn’t announced anything yet, but will be sure to let you know if/when we do.
After Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained the site’s fascination (and potential) for search at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt conference, many are waiting for the other shoe to drop. However, it appears that anything new with regard to search will have to wait for another day.
Facebook’s f8 is not a regularly planned event, as it has happened four times in the past five years.
