What To Expect From Facebook's 'Awesome' Announcement Today: Video Chat Via Skype Coming? (UPDATE)
[PREVIOUSLY]Mark Zuckerberg has promised that Facebook will "launch something awesome" today at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST). But what will it be?
Rumors suggest that Facebook has partnered with Skype to execute the new feature, which will compete with the new "Hangouts" video chat feature found on the newly launched Google+ social network. There are even whispers on the wind that Facebook could introduce group video chats, which Google+ also features.
And what about Facebook's secretive mobile platform? According to TechCrunch, the so-called Project Spartan will not be a part of today's lineup. Insiders reported to TechCrunch that the project won't be ready to unveil until July 17 and that an August 1 launch is likely.
