The social network's invitation to "learn about a new product" closely trails its release of hash tags and comes just days after the discovery of code that hints at a Facebook RSS reader.

Facebook is inviting members of the press to attend a mystery event on Thursday, June 20 at its Menlo Park, Calif. headquarters, where the company promises to unveil a new product.

The invitation, sent via snail mail according to ABC News, reads: "A small team has been working on a big idea. Join us for coffee and learn about a new product."

Facebook confirmed the event with CNET but would not provide additional details.

The invite for the product-related event closely trails the social network's release of hash tags , a long overdue feature that finally connects the company to pop culture.

It also comes just days after a developer discovered code that hints at the development of a Facebook RSS reader. A reader release would make for a timely launch as Google Reader is going dark on July 1 .
