Facebook's 2015 F8 developer conference keynote: Join us Wednesday (live blog)

The social-networking giant is expected to offer new ways for developers to work with its products, particularly its Messenger communication service and Instagram photo-sharing network.

Facebook's developer conference is being held in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Facebook is set to kick off its annual F8 conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, and as in years past the confab will be more focused on developers than the people who actually use the service.

The world's largest social-networking company is expected to discuss a variety of topics over the two-day event, including new initiatives for its Instagram photo-sharing service and its Messenger communication app.

Mark Zuckerberg, the company's co-founder and CEO, will be giving the keynote address at 10 a.m. PT Wednesday, and we'll be bringing you the news live from the Fort Mason Center, where the developer conference is being held. I'll be live-blogging, and CNET's James Martin will provide photography.

You can figure out what time the keynote will start in your time zone here.

F8 has historically been a more consumer-focused event, with Facebook announcing big strategic shifts. In 2007, the company announced its "social graph," a way for users to interact with other websites using their Facebook account. In 2010, the company made it possible to add "like" buttons to any website on the Web. And in 2011, the company announced its new Timeline design for its website.

But last year, Facebook switched its focus to developers, promising them more-consistent ways to interact with its site. During his keynote Wednesday, Zuckerberg is likely to take a similar tack, talking about new technologies his company has built to help app developers better interact with the nearly 900 million people who use Facebook daily.
