GPS 2016 recap part 5: Product roadmap


Continuing our follow-up to last year’s Global Partner Summit, which was our biggest Partner event ever, we’re highlighting six sessions from the two-day event. In this week’s installment, we feature one of the summit’s most popular sessions, Maz Sharafi’s presentation of the product roadmap. Maz is Facebook’s Product Marketing Director, DR and in this session—which was part of the day two Grow track—he talked about trends we’re thinking about, where we’re going and what we’re building.

The Grow track allowed Partners to sit down with leads from across Facebook, including product marketing, verticals, business and more. These Facebook experts shared key insights and business opportunities in areas such as verticals, products and emerging markets.

Watch Maz’s presentation now, or you can view any of the sessions from both days of the summit at our website. Next week we’ll wrap up our recap series with another session from the Grow track, this time looking at people-based measurement.
