Facebookville

For many workers, commuting is a big problem. Driving in morning traffic and wasting gas tests patience and hurts bank accounts. But what if commuting would never be a problem and you could wake up, step out the door, and be at work instantly?

Facebook has created a $120 million dollar housing unit for its workers in the California area. These 394 units are walking distance from work, include sports bars and doggie daycares, and has a doctor’s office on site. Employers could dine in the man restaurants on the premises or have their bike repaired in the bike shops available.Β Β 

“In seeking to reduce the commute for its employees, Facebook walks a fine line between pampering its workers and creating an environment in which there is no delineation between work and home. The complex has already been nicknamed “Zuckland” and “Facebookville” and likened to the company towns of the early 20th Century in which workers were little more than indentured servants to their employers.”

This “town” would only be able to house ten percent of the Menlo Park staff. Would it even be worth it?

About Noel Biever

My name is Noel Elaine Biever, and I'm from Lebanon, Pennsylvania. I hate living in the small town and I am ready to branch out. I love to travel. I've been to 11 countries in Europe and I can' t wait to go on another adventure. I hope to one day live and work in Europe, raise a big family, and speak a lot of languages fluently. Singing and acting are two things I absolutely love to do, as well as playing the guitar. I am a big fan of movies, and I am addicted to the $5 movie bin at Walmart. Saturday Night Live and The Big Bang Theory are two of my favorite shows, and I abolutely adore HGTV. I love the little things in life and I believe that everything happens for a reason. So that's me in a paragraph. Thanks for stoppin by:)
