Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share, and make the world more open and connected.

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 make the world more open and accessible.

On games, our mission is to connect people with the games they love and help developers to reach new audiences and monetize their games.

Our brand new mobile offering of Instant Games lets play games in Messenger and Facebook, competing to get the highest scores in Pacman and other games. Our investments in video through partnerships with Blizzard and other big gaming companies help us spread gaming content throughout the graph to make sure people are always able to discover new and exciting experiences with games. All of these products speak to our market impact of $2.5B in 2015 and an amazing amount of time spent on Facebook playing games.Are you passionate about social gaming?
