To accommodate more employees, it is obvious that the office space should be big enough too. Technographx has brought this post to inform you about the new location of Facebook. So, let us continue reading and check it out.
The location of Facebook has changed from its previous headquarters at Palo Alto to its new headquarters at 1 Hacker Way Menlo Park ca 94025. Some time ago, the Facebook team was busy shifting all the materials to the new location. Many business cards were also printed with the new location address at that time.
The central address for the campus is 1 hacker way Menlo park. And also, there are addresses of the specific buildings as well. For instance, the legal department has the address of 18 Hacker Way, Menlo Park.
The news was also there that Facebook wants to build a second campus and is planning to connect both the campuses via an underground tunnel. Almost 9,400 employees are currently working on this new campus.
Seeing the rapid progress of the company, it needs to think big and also needs to expand itself. Currently, the number of active users on this platform are almost 2.5 billion and this number is going to increase with time for sure. So, the company management needs to think big and expand the workforce as well.
The earlier campus is small and not capable of housing this much employees so it is mandatory for Facebook to think of a bigger campus and that’s what it did. It has a total of around 30,000 employees all over the world.
Every department in Facebook has many employees and for accommodating all of them, this new headquarter is perfect seeing its spacious design.
