Facebook Sends Test Message Saying Hi; Developers Tingle With Excitement

This is funny. At 10:29 am PST this morning all 2,000 members of the Facebook Developers Group got a message that said “Hi” as the subject and “test” in the body. Since then we’ve received multiple “tips” from Facebook developers with variations of the message “I wonder if they plan on sending out some news soon?”

Well, Facebook should be announcing their annual F8 developer conference some time soon. But our guess is this was just what it said it was – a test message that was sent out by accident.

So many companies would be stoked to see conspiracy theories pop up like this around an accidental test message. What I love about this story isn’t the accidental message, it’s the excited response from the developers.
