Facebook's making the best of its move from downtown Palo Alto to an old Hewlett-Packard building in the suburbs. As if to prove the campus is sufficiently cool, one engineer shot a video in which he skateboards through the building. Someone else took pictures.
Silicon Alley Insider, which got its hands on inside footage of the new digs, reports the social network has rechristened the cafeteria "Cafe X." How edgy!
The lounge retains a certain retro industrial chic. Which is to say it hasn't changed all that much.
The picnic area looks nice, if you're into, you know, sunlight. Just remember to stay off the neighbors' lawns!
The work areas are certainly colorful.
Curiously, there are no pictures of what's become of the old building's sea of cubicles. Judging from the video, it looks like they've become a sea of desks. At least the monitors are nice and large, allowing employees to tune out their surroundings like so many other office workers: By getting lost in Facebook.
