According to Reuters, the exec told reporters visiting the company’s offices in Seattle that Facebook’s planning a big announcement, and that the product had been developed at its Seattle office.

There have been a lot of rumors about new features planned for Facebook, including a music service and an iPad app.

The company faces some competition this week from Google, which just launched its latest social network, Google +, in direct competition with Facebook.
