Facebook has a big launch event on Tuesday. Here are nine things I think it may be working on, or at least should be.

What this list doesn’t include is wildly forward-thinking products. Facebook should definitely still be trying to blow people away with revolutionary innovation. But right now there are cracks in the infrastructure, business deficiencies, and huge opportunities to apply its data set that need to be taken care of.
