A trip to Facebook

Some of 4th Class visited the European Headquarters of Facebook a few weeks ago. This was organised by Susan, an aunt of Alex in 4th and Dougie in 5th. The journey to the city centre and swapping trams on the Luas was different than a regular school day! We walked across the Liffey noting historical sites and buildings and then we arrived at the headquarters which seemed like a very secure building, more like an airport! We saw what the inside of a technology company looks like for the employees and it seemed like the staff enjoy all of the perks that the job comes with. We also learned about the very high number of active users of Facebook there are in the world which is approximately 2.5 billion. That means that one third of the worlds population log on to Facebook most days. It led to interesting discussions!
