Facebook employs 3,000 people worldwide. A lot of private and public sector organisations use Facebook services. For example, you tell us Facebook partnered with the Electoral Commission in the run-up to the last General Election in this country, indeed to encourage young people to register to vote, and the monarchy made extensive use of the service during last year's royal wedding celebrations.
