In an effort to create a culture of transparency, Facebook's new 430,000-square-foot headquarters will have its 2,800 employees working in an open floor plan - including the Zuck, himself.

Facebook big-man Mark Zuckerberg recently gave a video tour (using Facebook live video, of course) of the new expanded building, boasting of the company's open and transparent culture.

Zuckerberg showed off his own desk, which sits right in with everyone else, topped with a Macbook, a Facebook sign, and a model of their wifi-dispersing airplane. Zuckerberg explained that even the people who run the social media giant don't have any special offices, only a glass conference room is used when he needs to take meetings or talk to outsiders.

"The whole idea here is that, by having an open floor plan where people work close to each other, it facilitates people sharing and communicating about what they're doing, which enables better collaboration, which we think is key to building the best services for our community," Zuckerberg says.
