From TechCrunch:

Why has Facebook brought together big time press from Agence France, ABC 7 and TechCrunch together here at Menlo Park City Hall? Because it’s hiring, and it wants to announce it by purchasing a building.

David Ebersman, the CFO of Facebook made the announcement and as we previously reported, Facebook will be moving from the space it has leased on S. California Avenue and 1050 Page Mill Road in Palo Alto into Sun Microsystems old headquarters, an 11 building, 57 acre property, 1 million square feet on the Bayfront Expressway in Menlo Park.

The building can accomodate 3600 people and a Facebook representative said that it could hold, “Even more.” The ETA of the move is June/July according to the same representative. Full article

Inside Facebook has an overhead photo of the campus.

Mashable and Forbes live-blogged the press conference. More on the real-estate aspect from The Almanac on Palo Alto Online.
