“Last year, our development community empowered the growth of businesses of all sizes so that they could adapt to a changing world and accelerate their digital transformation … With this in mind, we want to put F8 back to its roots: a place to celebrate, inspire and help developers grow,” VP of Platform Partnerships on Facebook App, Konstantinos Papamiltiadis wrote in a post.
“We are excited to introduce the new format of the event, F8 Refresh. Our platform will be open to developers around the world and will be broadcast live on our Facebook page for Developers on June 2, ”he added.
At the event, a major telecommunications company will showcase its latest products, which not only include developments in its family of apps including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger but also its hardware products including Oculus VR headset and Smart Portal display.
Over the years, Facebook has used its developer conference to make major changes to its operating systems and to launch a dating platform. The company also used the event to renew its focus on privacy. However, its plans were disrupted last year due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
