Facebook announcement rumours – what could it be?

Today’s Facebook announcement (due at 6pm UK time) has sent the rumour mill into overdrive for the last few days with speculation as to what the social network will be launching at their press event on 15th January 2013.

Facebook announcement

There has been talk since last year about the possibility of a Facebook smartphone coming out to join the already crowded race in mobile phone land. But what else could it be? Journalists were asked to “come and see what we’re building”.

We run down the Facebook announcement rumours pre-launch to help you get in the mood for the big reveal later on.

Facebook Smartphone
Although Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has hinted that a Facebook smartphone was not on the cards last year, a lot can change in just a few months in the Internet world. One thing’s for sure, Proporta will certainly be eager to provide you with a Facebook phone case if this is in fact what they’re launching.

New News Feed
Speculators think that Facebook could well want to expand the news feed into a hub for worldwide information, rather than just being about the people you’re friends with.

Charged Messages
Facebook told the world last year that they were thinking about implementing a $1 charge for every private message sent to non-friends, so could this be the announcement?

Facebook as the New Search Engine
Could the world’s biggest social network also become a search engine?

What do you think the Facebook announcement will be? Let us know in the comments section below.
