We’ll Be on Location for Facebook’s Wednesday Press Event

Facebook has been working on its location services for quite a while now, and we’ve been hearing with more frequency lately that it may be planning to launch them in the coming weeks. The new features might compete against other check-in services, but also might allow them to somehow use Facebook’s data in new ways. We’ve most recently heard that Facebook will offer a simple addition to the existing user experience, with features such as the ability to attach a location to a status update, or Like a physical place.

We might find out on Wednesday, when Facebook is planning to hold a press event at its headquarters around a new “service.”

The company is sending out invitations to a number of reporters today that reads: “You are invited to attend a news event at Facebook this Wednesday at 4:30pm. During the event, Facebook representatives will provide an update on the service’s features and products.”

We’ll be on location to cover it.
