The discussion will include tips for creating compelling narratives in VR, building cross-platform VR content, and adding social components to VR.

Fake News and Violent Content - With the ability to go live, new ways to speed up the removal of graphic content will be announced, as well as new programs to help users spot fake news and monitor reliability.

Facebook at Work - The Workplace feature has been in a testing phase since early April, but it is expected that Facebook is ready to roll the service out to the general public during the conference.

Voice Control - Everyone has heard of Amazon’s Alexa, now Facebook is trying to show some new voice features of its own. Facebook does have personal assistant “M” but it is not available to most Facebook users, it could be released during the conference.
