Facebook was not originally created to be a company

The Book of Hack

By Facebook Inc. and Edited by Ben Barry, Tim Belonax, J. Smith

As the company of Facebook grew, it faced a lot of challenges. One of them was explaining the company’s mission, history, and culture to new employees. Over the years, a lot of formative company discussions and debates had happened in Facebook Groups, over email, or in person. Those who had been present at the time had context, but for new employees that information was difficult to find, even if you knew what you were looking for. This small book repackages many of those stories and ideas in one place for employees.
