Our historyWe are Facebook. Established in Massachusetts in 2004, our products empower more than 3 billion people around the world to share ideas, offer support, and make a difference.
At the end of 2011, Facebook moved headquarters to the city of Menlo Park. In Menlo Park, Facebook collaborates with local residents to co-design and support local programs, which fulfill our mission of giving people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. These programs include a mobile fresh produce market, small business marketing resources, tech internships for young adults, paid summer learning experiences for high school students, and workforce housing.
Facebook’s Hub, a 12,000 sq ft. work, events, and education space is a co-designed vision. It grew out of a desire, shared by Facebook and local residents, for more opportunities to connect, work, and learn in a way that builds professional development and personal relationships.
Due to COVID-19, we are launching the space virtually for residents to learn and connect in preparation for the physical opening in 2021. The Virtual Hub will be centered around fostering professional development and personal relationships through interactive and engaging online programming that builds community.
What we do
Our mission is to facilitate connections, enhance professional and personal networks, and expand learning horizons collectively.
The Virtual Hub will feature classes and programming through Facebook’s Global Business Marketing and Business Education Partnerships teams, as well as through San Mateo Community College District.
The Hub is a place for members to earn a certification, practice a language, gain expertise on social media marketing, utilize Facebook tools for businesses, career support, and of course, connect, work and learn.
Those interested in being a part of the Hub can register to become a member.
What’s to come
Physical space anticipated to open in 2021!
The (physical) Hub will be a community workspace where people can meet, collaborate, and innovate. With multiple room types, including two large training rooms, bookable conference rooms and smaller 2-person touchdown rooms, the Hub offers the community a place to work, meet and grow. The space will feature individual desks, communal work areas, lockers for personal items, a nursing mother’s room as well as an all gender restroom. To promote community and new connections, the center of the Hub will be a kitchen where users can take a break and grab a quick coffee or chat with a team member over lunch.
