Facebook is the most popular social networking product in the world, with over 2 billion monthly active users. Our mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.
So far, we've connected more than 2 billion people — which means we still have more than 5 billion to go. The scale and complexity of our work are unprecedented, and the work we do makes a real difference in the lives of people around the world. Over time, we’ve expanded the Facebook family to include Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, Augmented & Virtual Reality, and Facebook Connectivity — but when it comes to bringing the world closer together, we’re just getting started.
Facebook is defined by our unique culture – one that rewards impact. We encourage our people to be bold and solve the problems they care most about. Facebook employees work in small teams that move fast and iterate to develop new products. Together, we help others build stronger communities — and we're just getting started.
