Facebook’s server farm

Written by admin on March 5, 2009 – 11:29 am -

A lot of my long lost friends have found me through Facebook. I’ve never been a huge fan of social networking sites like Friendster, MySpace or Multiply simply because I always thought of them to be something that only my kids would be interested in. Facebook has somehow gotten my attention because it allows you to have multiple levels of privacy and chose what information is made public. I mainly used it to keep track of all my contacts both work and personal.

I have connected to  over 300 friends from my old work buddies to long lost  elementary classmates and it made me wonder what kind of hardware is behind a Facebook. I googled and found this photo which is probably just a small portion of the Facebook server farm. Can’t imagine everyone’s info just sitting in one of those computers.
