Facebook's Growing Real Estate Empire

It may best be known for its dominance of online space (and many people’s head space), but over the past 10 years Facebook has considerably increased its real property holdings as well. The most recent announcement that it was buying a 56-acre industrial park in Menlo Park, Calif. to expand its corporate headquarters is just the latest in a rapidly accelerating number of Facebook’s real estate deals, including both outright purchases and leases. For a closer look at how much the company’s property needs have grown in a relatively short period of time, take a look at our gallery. And keep in mind that this is only Facebook’s office holdings—the company also uses multiple data centers, in Iowa, North Carolina, Oregon, California, Virginia and Lulea, Sweden.
