Facebook is a social utility that helps over 350 million people communicate more efficiently with their friends, family and coworkers. The site has been built on common open source software such as Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP and over the past few years, the company has developed a number of open source infrastructure technologies to support the site's growth including Cassandra, Hive, Scribe, and Thrift.

Facebook engineers actively contribute and participate in various open source projects, developing technologies that facilitate the sharing of information through the social graph.
