    Hi everybody! Welcome to our Facebook live blog.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:47:24 PM
    The press is still lined up at Facebook, waiting to get in.
  • Jauk 3/7/2013 5:47:26 PM
    Hi Casey!
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:47:29 PM
    Hello all. More CNETers will be joining in a moment.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:47:30 PM
    Hi there!
  • aj marz 3/7/2013 5:48:45 PM
    is this something that might finally fix the mobile app!
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:48:57 PM
    Probably not!
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:49:11 PM
    Yes. Should be fun. Messing with -- um, improving -- News Feed is a big deal. ANd it's a tricky balance between keeping users happy and keeping advertisers happy. Though Zuckerberg has been saying it's one and the same.
  • Kamran Mackey 3/7/2013 5:49:12 PM
    What about my comment? It didn't get accepted. It said "Hello!". :(
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:49:22 PM
    So sensitive, Kamran! But hello. :)
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:50:41 PM
    So, there is a video stream if you want to watch along with our liveblog: new.livestream.com
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:50:48 PM
    Right now it is playing very chill music.
  • Mark 3/7/2013 5:51:09 PM
    Hi Casey! Keen to see what Facebook announce.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:51:12 PM
    Me too!
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 5:51:29 PM
    We're in!
  • Leo 3/7/2013 5:51:30 PM
    well.. this is weird. Neither Hi or Hello of my comments went through
  • Jauk 3/7/2013 5:51:34 PM
    All this hype for a new news need - maybe Facebook is still "hip" after all.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 5:51:37 PM
    Waiting for things to get rolling.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:51:40 PM
    We are moderating your comments. Only the strongest will survive!

  • Kylenelson24 3/7/2013 5:51:46 PM

  • Jeremy Knight 3/7/2013 5:51:47 PM
    live updating
  • Kamran Mackey 3/7/2013 5:51:49 PM
    @CaseyNewton Hello :)
  • Mike Mel 3/7/2013 5:51:52 PM
    Making history here......
  • Lydia 3/7/2013 5:51:55 PM
    Anyone know if/where we can watch a live stream of the press conference?
  • Mike Mel 3/7/2013 5:52:00 PM
    I'm liking this.............. This will be a great addition to the FB technology.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:52:27 PM
    The big question: Who will freak out over what?
  • Devin Wolfe 3/7/2013 5:52:45 PM
    i was hoping for news on the redesigned timeline and the notification sound but i'll see where this goes
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:52:46 PM
    I have decided to pre-freak out, just to be ready.
  • janlgordon 3/7/2013 5:52:48 PM
    Hi everyone, standing by.......
  • Jauk 3/7/2013 5:53:08 PM
    Maybe the new feature is a filter that detects red solo cups in pictures and prevents people on your family and co-workers lists from seeing them.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:53:15 PM
    This event is all about News Feed -- which, for Facebook, is all about engagement and making money.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:53:16 PM
    I endorse the red solo cup filter feature.
  • Kamran Mackey 3/7/2013 5:53:17 PM
    @CaseyNewton It's kinda hard to do when you have the Liveblog in one tab and the Live stream in another tab when using Chrome, haha :D
  • bluelily17 3/7/2013 5:53:22 PM
    waiting to see how this changes brand pages.
  • Devin Wolfe 3/7/2013 5:53:31 PM
    @Paul Sloan
    most people who can't deal with change
  • Erik 3/7/2013 5:53:40 PM
    Hopefully this isn't ine of those many step backwards.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 5:53:40 PM
    The best choice is to ignore the video stream and allow your favorite CNET personalities to paint a picture with words.
  • SarahADowney 3/7/2013 5:53:46 PM
    Prediction: Facebook changes some things, these things greatly reduce user privacy, people freak out & say they're quitting, most people don't quit. Repeat.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:54:00 PM
    +1 Casey!
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 5:54:38 PM
    @Devin Wolfe That's true, they don't. At least at first. Then they adapt.
  • Kamran Mackey 3/7/2013 5:55:09 PM
    @CaseyNewton Haha, nice one! But how can I ignore the video stream with all that catchy music playing? :D
  • Steve 3/7/2013 5:55:14 PM
    I want a filter for "name a city without E in it" to help make some of my friends look less gullible.
  • Jauk 3/7/2013 5:55:17 PM
    @Casey I don't know, what if they say or release something CNET's parent company is against?
  • Mari Smith 3/7/2013 5:55:20 PM
    Regardless of how awesome the new News Feed is, no doubt a slew of new fan pages will pop up shortly... "Give me back my old News Feed - click like if you agree" LOL!! Yep, there's nothing as certain as change.
