What to expect at Facebook's F8 conference

Later today, Facebook will kick off its annual F8 developers' conference in Silicon Valley. As usual, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, along with a parade of executives, will unveil a slew of new products and features—some more significant than others.

Why it matters: Since the first F8 conference 10 years ago, Facebook has used the event to push its service forward. In 2007, it announced the Facebook Platform, and last year Zuckerberg presented the company's plans for the next 10 years. Zuckerberg is also likely to take the opportunity to comment on the company's recent challenges regarding "fake news," violent Facebook Live videos, and even an update on his U.S. tour.
