What Is Facebook’s Big Surprise?

Facebook‘s CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg told reporters visiting Facebook’s Seattle office that the social networking site would “launch something awesome” next week.

While Zuckerberg gave no hint as to what that awesome thing may be, there has been speculation in the last few weeks that Facebook was working on mobile products, such as a Facebook app for Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad or a photo-sharing app for iPhone.

Whatever the new feature, product or app may be, Zuckerberg has told us that it was developed at the Seattle office, and not at the company’s Palo Alto headquarters. The Seattle office has made a lot of the company’s mobile advances, including playing a central role in developing the company’s unified mobile site, which was unveiled in March.

Competitors to watch: LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG).
