With Facebook's Thunder Stolen, Many Are Wondering What Will Be Announced At f8

It’s no secret that Facebook is no longer the hottest startup in Silicon Valley. With Twitter pursuing an aggressive search strategy and a fast growing user base thanks to Oprah’s support, Twitter is now Silicon Valley’s darling. Facebook however continues to add millions of users a week and the company has an active developer base that’s looking for some indication of Facebook’s next big step.

The first f8 event brought about the beginning of the Facebook platform during which time Mark Zuckerberg proclaimed the era of a new web-based operating system. While Facebook was able to attract a large number of developers, the honeymoon has ended and developers are now looking for a clear vision from the company’s leadership.
