Facebook is running a limited test of a possible solution to the staggering amount of photos hosted by the social network, converting JPEG photos to Google’s WebP image format for compatible browsers such as Google Chrome and Opera, but the experiment is already facing resistance.

Facebook loves to run hackathons, where developers have 24 hours to come up with the best application possible.

Now Facebook HQ will host a hackathon for the Windows 8 platform in Menlo Park, Calif., this weekend.
