Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.

Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.
How do you scale to multiple billions of users? From the patch of dirt, we build an office on to the custom WIFI into employee’s houses instead of needing to VPN, there is a lot behind facebook.com.
