A Trip to Facebook HQ

A week ago, my friend who works at Facebook (in Seattle) was  in town, so he invited me to  come to Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park. I grabbed it!IMG_8045

 

I’ve been to Facebook HQ four times now. What shocked me this time was how many more employees there were! My friend has worked at FB for four years; he said that he’s worked longer at FB than 85 % of all other employees.

This is a lending library in the center of the campus. I always forget to bring one of my books to donate! And no doubt techie wizards would love to read Amish fiction, too. Next time I’ll bring one, for sure.

 

Facebook is such a unique environment–not unlike a college campus, where most everyone you pass is under 30. Or 25.

 

Below is a video arcade on the campus…in lieu of coffee breaks.

Just a note…each time I post about a trip to FB, I get emails from all over the world, asking me to help get them on a tour. I wish I could help but I can’t! FB doesn’t give public tours.
