    Greets, everyone. Facebook's press conference should begin shortly. They're seating one and all right now.
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 4:45:29 PM
    here we go, folks!
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 4:45:33 PM

    Blue Bottle coffee being served at Facebook.

  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 4:45:49 PM
    The doors are finally opening
  • Jennifer Van Grove 6/20/2013 4:46:20 PM
    So they were serious about the coffee. :)
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 4:48:01 PM
    What's with this talk show set? Most of us are seated on couches...

    Ramona the Love Terrier!

  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 4:51:03 PM
    Will it be an RSS Reader or video for Instagram?? Program scheduled to starts in 10 minutes...
  • charles.cooper 6/20/2013 4:52:27 PM
    The anticipation is doing bupkus for the stock. Predictably.
  • MQZ 6/20/2013 4:52:30 PM
    What about fulfilling promises they made months ago? Like the new News Feed?
  • charles.cooper 6/20/2013 4:53:20 PM
    Folks, lift-off is slated for 10 AM, Pacific Time, 1 PM for you east coasters. Rest of world - you'll have to do the math. But it's soon :)
  • Nishant 6/20/2013 4:53:26 PM
    I think if it is a RSS reader their stock value is going to reach heights
  • Jennifer Van Grove 6/20/2013 4:53:41 PM
    @MQZ: good point. New News Feed is still in very limited release. But Facebook did tease a new product.
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 4:54:00 PM
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 4:54:32 PM
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 4:55:00 PM
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 4:55:06 PM

    And here we are!

    It will indeed be an interesting press conference. I am excited to see what it is about.
  • ci4n 6/20/2013 4:56:50 PM
    why does the rollout of things like the new News Feed take so long?
  • Nishant 6/20/2013 4:58:07 PM
    Google reader is shutting down on 1st july, there can be no better time to launch a RSS reader
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 4:58:33 PM
    James Martin did find a possible clue earlier:
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 5:01:17 PM
    It's a pretty big crowd, but not as big as the Home launch.
  • Arkane1 6/20/2013 5:01:24 PM
    you would think facebook could get to the punch quicker than later
    capitalism..... ;)
  • DjJJK 6/20/2013 5:01:28 PM
    How many of you bet its a pic+vid thing???
  • adhi 6/20/2013 5:01:34 PM
    I think they would have took some clues from google I/o
  • Jeremiah 6/20/2013 5:01:36 PM
    I really do appreciate want video on Instagram.
  • Bruce Armstrong 6/20/2013 5:01:37 PM
    Were I a stockholder in Facebook, I'd be interested to know how much money was pissed away on this 3-ring circus today.
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 5:02:03 PM
    I'm hearing the hashtag #VineStagram float around the room...any takers?
  • Jew4BlackBerry 6/20/2013 5:03:20 PM
    I guess they don't start on time. Too busy making vines backstage :P
  • Emily 6/20/2013 5:03:23 PM
    Maybe that's why it was such limited invite - so the stockholders would see they're not into spending lots of money on things like this.
  • charles.cooper 6/20/2013 5:03:36 PM
    They are now officially two minutes late.
  • Dsjenson 6/20/2013 5:03:40 PM
    Please not video on Instagram! That ruins it's whole purpose. Vine is annoying enough as it is
  • Emmanuel Pacamalan 6/20/2013 5:03:42 PM
    I really don't know what to feel about video on instagram..
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 5:03:54 PM
  • gerbensteyaert 6/20/2013 5:05:31 PM
    I want video for Instagram!
  • kush 6/20/2013 5:05:33 PM
    I dont use instagram, so i dont care about video on it...because i am a windows phone user
  • Arkane1 6/20/2013 5:05:35 PM
    wow, a facebook logo.........think they'll get to the news soon, or should we log in later to see if they've finished with their coffee
  • Steven H 6/20/2013 5:05:38 PM
    It would make for more annoying shootouts on Instagram
  • Kevin 6/20/2013 5:05:41 PM
    I have a feeling that Vine is going to have some new competition in a few minutes.
  • James Martin 6/20/2013 5:06:04 PM
  • Donna Tam 6/20/2013 5:06:15 PM
    Lights dimming....
