F8, the Facebook developer conference, was held earlier today for the third time in San Francisco. Amidst much anticipation, CEO Mark Zucherberg took the stage to introduce the next version of the Facebook platform, including a host of new features that have the potential to transform the social/semantic web.
As ever the conference was open to a limited number of developers. This year however, for the first time ever the entire event was streamed live to thousands of viewers on the web using the Livestream Platform.
We’re excited to partner with Facebook and the F8 conference has been a great opportunity for us to showcase some upcoming technologies of our own here at Livestream. The Facebook application, designed specifically for this event, boasts six simultaneous channels, a host of social features (chat, live-blogs, social feeds, recordings) and even support for the iPad and other HTML5 enabled devices.
If you missed the event, you can still check out the Livestream Facebook application and watch a replay of Mark Zuckerberg’s keynote address here.
