Facebook is set to change things drastically
Facebook has already stated that it will be shaking and switching things up drastically with 2017 F8 developer conference event. So far Facebook developer conference has been held at the San Francisco but going forward this year this event will take place in San Jose for the first time.
The reason cited for the change in place is attributed to the fact that San Francisco facility isn’t big enough to handle the footfall. Like each year developers can expect some brand new products features from Facebook to boost the popularity and usability of its ever expanding social media platform in the world. This year’s developer conference will have as many as 50 different developer sessions focusing on various things related to its platform, APIs and tools.
