Innovation is at the core of our mission
We started as a social network, and always looked to innovation when an answer didn’t exist. Today, we build for hardware initiatives, AI, connectivity, commerce, Facebook Reality Labs, and much more. Our mission—to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together—guides our innovative decision making.
