Inside the Facebook Campus

Ever wondered how it looks inside the Facebook Offices? Take a tour through the Facebook Campus in Menlo Park, California and see how the employees of the youngest billionaire spends their working day.



Facebook employees moved into the campus during December 2011.



One of the main roads leading into the Facebook Campus is named “Hacker Way”


Hacker Square will be the cultural center, where employees will congregate for movies and parties. The red bridges are painted the same color as the Golden Gate Bridge which is a nod to the campus’ proximity to San Francisco.
