When you are in Silicon Valley exploring your tech tour, you can’t be possibly missed out the social media giant -Facebook. Here I am at the Facebook HQ in Silicon Valley.
Upon arriving at the visitor car park, you will notices blocks of colorful building all line up neatly and bright up the whole place. Next you will see friendly security officers helping you to cross the streets in the campus. They will greet you with “good morning” & “have a great day” with smile of course.
Unlike Googleplex, Facebook main campus is not allowed for visitors, unless you know someone who is working in Facebook. However, there is still a designated area/must go area which all visitors will rush there to shoot their profile picture!
There isn’t much to see in Facebook except the thumb up sign board, still you will expect a line to queue. Do wait patiently for your turn to go up the “stage” to receive the “like”.
I was copying the guy before me who did the jump pose, picture turn out to be good.
These old premises used to belong to the Sun Microsystems site.
EV (Electric Vehicle) Charging station at Facebook.
Hundreds of bikes in light blue line up outside the campus.
Including safety helmets too.
I only manage to spot one of the facilities – rock climbing stones. I believe there are many hidden gem in the main campus.
Way out to Facebook
Final thoughts :
If you are in Silicon Valley doing the tech tour, there is not harm to make a detour to Facebook to check out their famous thumb up sign located outside the campus – 1 Hacker Way. Do not have too high expectation like what you see in Googleplex compus, Facebook main campus is not allow to access for visitors unless you know someone who is working there. Having said that, you will still be surprised at the number of tourists making their pilgrimage daily here! I was kind of shock at the groups of tourists on the tech tour buses stop here for their “thumb up” picture.
