Announcing @Scale 2014!

We’re thrilled to announce the latest in our @Scale conference series! On Monday, September 15, more than 800 engineers from the @Scale community will converge on the InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco for a day-long series of deeply technical talks focused on engineering at scale.

The September event will open with a keynote from Facebook’s global head of engineering, Jay Parikh, and then delve into 21 different talks on three different tracks: mobile, data, and web. Participants will discuss the latest developments and challenges in building and testing native mobile apps at scale; developing web-scale analytics infrastructures and data management systems; and evolving and using web technologies in a mobile-first world.

Save button on Facebook

Every day, people find all sorts of interesting items on Facebook that they don’t have time to explore right away. Now you can save items that you find on Facebook to check out later when you have more time. You can save items like links, places, movies, TV and music. Only you can see the items you save unless you choose to share them with friends.

Fighting Bulk Search Warrants In Court

The goal of Facebook is to protect people’s information on Facebook, so when a government requests data, it’s a big deal to us. We have strict policies in place for law enforcement requests and have published these procedures publicly for anyone to review.

Our team scrutinizes each request we receive individually and checks for legally valid and complete documentation from law enforcement. We regularly push back on requests that are vague or overly broad. Our recent Government Requests report here has more details.

Q: How can we bring free internet access to countries like Colombia where internet access is still a big business?

Introducing the App

Over 85% of the world’s population lives in areas with existing cellular coverage, yet only about 30% of the total population accesses the internet. Affordability and awareness are significant barriers to internet adoption for many and today we are introducing the app to make the internet accessible to more people by providing a set of free basic services.
