Facebook's new headquarters is located at 1 Hacker Way

Summary: Facebook is moving its headquarters from Palo Alto to Menlo Park. The address of the new location is 1 Hacker Way, according to a business card belonging to one of the company's employees.


Facebook is still in the process of moving from its current headquarters in Palo Alto to its new location in Menlo Park. At least some of the business cards have already been printed, making the company's new address pretty much official: 1 Hacker Way.

As you can see in the photograph above, courtesy of TechCrunch, Facebook's new address is 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94205. We've known for a while now it was going to be located on Hacker Way, but this is the first time we're seeing the full address.

Although 1 Hacker Way is the central address for the campus, specific buildings have their own addresses. For example, 18 Hacker Way is reportedly the address for the legal department. They seem to be arbitrarily chosen, though I'm sure we'll one day hear stories of buildings without an address, or numbers that have been skipped on purpose, and so on.

Not only is Facebook moving from its campus in Palo Alto to a bigger one in Menlo Park, but the company is also building a second campus across the street and joining the two with an underground tunnel. Ultimately, Facebook wants approval from Menlo Park to house 9,400 employees.

The social networking giant originally wanted its new address to be 1 Social Circle, but after Google built Google+ with its Circles features, Facebook had to pick something new. The former Sun Microsystems campus previously had the address 1 Network Drive. Out of the three, I like 1 Hacker Way the most. What do you think?

  • RE: Facebook's new headquarters is located at 1 Hacker Way

    I guess the address is cool from a geek-cred standpoint, but it's probably not the face you want on your legitimate business correspondence. Though, in Facebook's case, they're not generally dealing with business-class customers from what I can tell, so maybe it's a non-issue for them as I doubt many people knew what Facebook's street address was at the old Palo Alto campus.
  • Who cares what they name it?

    The product is nothing more than a boasting tool for narcisists, and vehicle for a bunch of kids I barely remember from kindergarten whining to the world about their failed lives and asking me to water their crops.

    The individuals who head up and run Facebook are some of the most repellant lowlifes I've ever seen.

    I hope a rock falls out of the sky on to 1 Hacker Way.
