Reporting from San Francisco — Facebook Inc. is preparing to launch a major new feature next week.

Andrew Bosworth, Facebook director of engineering, told The Times this week, "We are working on a number of exciting things that we have not yet announced, but stay tuned for next week."

On Wednesday, Facebook's chief executive and founder, Mark Zuckerberg, told reporters during a visit to the company's Seattle office that Facebook planned to "launch something awesome" next week.

The project was developed at the 40-person office that is Facebook's only major engineering hub outside of its Palo Alto headquarters, Zuckerberg said. In the past, the Seattle office has played a key role in Facebook's mobile efforts.

Speculation has centered on a Facebook app for Apple's iPad and a photo-sharing app for the iPhone.
