Facebook event today: redesign incoming?

Is Facebook following in Twitter's footsteps?

San Francisco gathering starts at 6pm UK time.

Facebook is gathering the great and the good of the world’s tech press tonight for “an invite-only event”, with rumours flying that the social network is set for yet another redesign.

Such a move would come hot-on-the-heels of Twitter’s well-received revamp a few weeks back and put Facebook back in the headlines for all the right reasons.

However, there’s also the suggestion that Zuckerberg and co are finally shaping up to release their official iPad app, which has been MIA ever since the tablet’s launch back in April.
