Facebook is still getting settled in their brand-new headquarters designed by Canadian architect Frank Gehry , and they must really ‘like’ it because they’ve got plans in the works to add two more buildings to the campus. The San Francisco Business Times reports that Facebook has proposed plans to the Menlo Park City Hall for two more blocks of social media presence, to be situated just west of the new HQ. The new additions will reportedly add 90,000 square meters (968,750 square feet) of work space for Facebook employees.
