Ukususela ngoko UMark Zuckerberg yasekwa Facebook kwigumbi lakhe lokulala kwiYunivesithi yaseHarvard ngo-2004, inkampani iye yahlala okwethutyana, indawo erentwayo. Ngoku, okwesihlandlo sokuqala, uFacebook ngumnini-mhlaba emva kokufudukela kwikhampasi entsha yaseMenlo Park.



Oko kuthetha ukuba inkampani yenethiwekhi yoluntu, ayinazo iintloni zokusebenzisa iiofisi zayo ukusasaza isazisi sayo sokuqala, ithatha ukuzibonakalisa kwinqanaba elitsha. Ukusuka ekuvezeni amabhanti entsimbi, kunye nokuwanikezela kwigraffiti yabasebenzi, ukuya ekukhetheni iplywood engenanto njengempahla yesilingi phezu kweendledlana zokuhamba zabasebenzi, inguqu eqhubekayo kaFacebook kwikhampasi eyayisakuba yi-Sun Microsystems yeqhosha lenzelwe ukunxibelelana ngomnxeba ukuba inkampani ngokwayo ihleli ingumsebenzi inkqubela.

Oku kugqityiwe. Ewe, ayigqitywanga, utshilo umphathi wezindlu ze-Facebook uJohn Tenanes, ekhomba kwiindonga ezisikiweyo ezisisigxina kunye neesilingi njengoko wanika eli phephandaba enye yezokuqala ngaphakathi zijonga ukumba okutsha kukaFacebook. Kuba umsebenzi wethu awuzange wenziwe. Siyipesenti enye yohambo. Yiloo nto i-mantra kaMarko: Siyipesenti ye-1 kuphela kunye neenguqu ze-Facebook ezithemba ukuzisa kwi-Intanethi.





I-aesthetics emva kwento eza kuba likhaya lokuqala le-Facebook elisisigxina lithetha kakhulu malunga nexabiso leenkampani kunye neenkolelo-kubandakanya imvakalelo yongxamiseko.

Kakade, malunga ne-500 abasebenzi be-Facebook, kubandakanywa namasebe ezomthetho kunye nezezimali zenkampani, baye bafudukela eMenlo Park. Umsebenzi kaTenanes kukugqiba ukulungiswa kokwaneleyo kwizakhiwo ezisithoba ezazisakuba yi-Sun complex ukuze kuhlalwe abasebenzi abali-1,400 abongezelelweyo ekupheleni konyaka, nomsebenzi kwikhampasi esele isele iza kugqitywa ngehlobo elizayo. Oku kuya kuvumela inkampani ekhula ngokukhawuleza ukuba ithathe abasebenzi abangama-3,600.



Siphantsi kompu apha kancinci, u-Tenanes wavuma, emi kwintendelezo ye-1,200-foot-long eya kuba ngumthambo ophakathi, apho imbono kule veki yayilawulwa ngukungcola, izixhobo zokwakha kunye nezakhiwo ezipeyintiweyo.

Kwithayimthebhile ebonelela ngomlinganiselo omnye wokukhula kukaFacebook, inkampani inethemba lokwakha entsha ngokupheleleyo Ikhampasi yaseNtshona ngaphaya kweWillow Road ukusuka kwikhampasi enkulu, kwaye uphumelele imvume yokuhlalisa abasebenzi abangama-9,400 kwikota yokuqala ka-2014.



Njengakwezinye iiofisi zikaFacebook kwihlabathi liphela, zonke izinto zokufudumeza kunye nokupholisa umbhobho ziyavezwa, ngamandla kunye neentambo zedatha ezijinga kwisilingi ukuya kwiindawo zokusebenza.

Ukukhuthaza intsebenziswano, abasebenzi be-Facebook abanayo iiofisi okanye iicubicles; phantse wonke umntu usebenza kwicala elinye kwiitafile ezinde, ezingahlulwanga.



Kwi-Menlo Park, nangona kunjalo, i-Facebook ithathe ukujonga okungagqitywanga ngakumbi. Abasebenzi banokubhala eludongeni, njengoko benzayo kwikomkhulu labo lasePalo Alto. Kodwa kwikhampasi entsha, inethiwekhi yoluntu ye-800 yezigidi yongeze iibhodi ezimnyama ezisezantsi ukuya kwisilingi apho abasebenzi banamathuba ongezelelweyo okuzibonakalisa-kubandakanya, njengoko umntu omnye ebhale ngetshokhwe eluhlaza kule veki, Musa ukuba yiGoogly, i-wry poke kwimbangi enkulu kaFacebook.

Yindawo entsha epholileyo ngokwenene, utshilo uRob Lauer, umsebenzi kaFacebook owayecanda kwenye yepaseji yesakhiwo kwibhodi yokutyibiliza ngelixa ekwikhefu. Kuvakala ngathi kuyingozi kakhulu kuba kuninzi ulwakhiwo oluqhubekayo-kodwa nguFacebook lowo.



U-Tenanes kunye neqela lakhe loyilo baye bazama ukugxininisa ukungahloneli, i-improvisational do-yourselfism ebonisa inkcubeko ye-computer hacker i-Facebook iyamkela.

I-Facebook, umzekelo, ayiyi kususa i-logo ye-Sun Microsystems kwiingcango ezininzi ezisele kumnini wangaphambili. I-Tenanes inokuthi kuphela iilogo zeLanga zizinto zakudala zexesha langaphambili eSilicon Valley. Zikwasisikhumbuzo esithe ngqo kubasebenzi malunga nekamva leenkampani zetekhnoloji ezisilelayo ukukhokela amaza okuvelisa izinto ezintsha.

Ukusuka kwikomkhulu leGeneral Motors eDetroit ukuya kwiSakhiwo saseChrysler eNew York, iinkampani kudala zisebenzisa i-architecture ukusasaza uphawu lwazo, utshilo u-Alan Hess, umzobi wezakhiwo kunye nomgxeki woyilo weli phephandaba.

Ikomkhulu likaFacebook lahluke kakhulu kwinto entsha apile ( I-AAPL ) ikomkhulu liya kuba, elilawulwa ngokugqithisileyo, kodwa i-Facebook ikwasebenzisa i-architecture ukuze ibonise uphawu lwayo ngaphandle, kunye nokuhambisa inkcubeko yayo ngaphakathi, u-Hess uthe. Luyilo lwezakhiwo njengesixhobo solawulo.

Kuyo yonke intendelezo esembindini, uTenanes kunye nabayili bakhe bazama ukuzisa umbono wendawo kwikhampasi. Intendelezo esembindini iya kufumana ityotyombe elenziwe ngamaplanga elizimela lodwa, kwaye intendelezo ende iya kudityaniswa nezinto ezifana nokutya kunye nesitendi sekofu, izixhobo zokubala zokulungisa iilaptop, kwaye, kunokwenzeka, indawo yomzobi ohlala khona.

Mhlawumbi ngokufanelekileyo, indoda enkulu ye-Facebook kwi-campus ifumana indawo enkulu yentlalontle - kumgangatho ophantsi ojongene ne-birch-lined space eyona ndawo ibanzi kwintendelezo ye-5-acre.

Le iya kuba yindawo evulekileyo, utshilo uTenanes, emi kumdaka ngaphandle kwendawo entsha yokusebenza ye-CEO uZuckerberg eza ngasekupheleni kukaDisemba. Iya kuba yindawo yokuphumla ngokupheleleyo.
