Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

Location Platform builds experiences to bring people closer together while helping them navigate and explore the world, safely and confidently. We do this by building best-in-class exemplars, defining the guidelines and principles around responsible location data usage, and serve as subject-matter experts for teams building their own location-powered products across the FB Family of Apps.
