Facebook’s F8 conference was supposed to be an annual event, but it seemed that it had a habit of coming and going. Fortunately: one thing is for sure about this event: every time word of an F8 spreads, the social media community gears up for whatever changes are coming in terms of the way they use social media.
This year’s F8 was held last April 30, 2014 in San Francisco. The three-year gap from the previous F8, which was also held in San Francisco, gave Facebook ample time to lay low and gear up for the necessary changes. Some changes may receive a warm welcome from its billion-strong users, while others may come under heavy flak.
