Roughly 1 person in 7 on the entire planet has a Facebook account.
It is now ubiquitous in our everyday lives and whether you treat the company with suspicion or welcome it’s influence with open arms, it has fundamentally changed the way the world communicates. We’ve already taken you on a walk down the corridors of power at Facebook and even given you a behind the scenes look at exactly how the perfect profile picture is created but today we’re looking at the very core of the site.

Thanks to our friends at Ned Hardy, here’s 14 photographs that take you deep into the very foundations of Facebook itself, the vault of Big Brother and a place where a billion stories are documented.
Is it what you expected?
