Comments on: Facebook in New York City? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/04/09/facebook-in-new-york-city/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Jay http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/04/09/facebook-in-new-york-city/#comment-357732 Sat, 11 Apr 2009 16:49:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=15934#comment-357732 Is Facebook a tech company or a media company? I would say that Facebook is really a media company and it makes more sense to be in a major media capitol like New York than in Palo Alto. Yes, New York has an unfriendly business climate, but the San Francisco Bay Area isn’t exactly a low-regulation, low-taxes, cheap-housing haven.

but 10 offices worldwide is not nothing, and the relevance of facebook accounts for social networking is remarkable.
I wonder if and when service networks like Oohlala will ever reach that volume .. but as the community is still growing, might as well be the case one day.
just like mr. benz or mr. gates once started in a backyard garage … 😉

Like what Rob posted, DatingANDTheCity.com does not need a room full of people just a place to host their servers.

I can’t figure out how to work Youtube to make videos. Facebook probly was the first to allow a twenty minute video. I made maybe more than thirty videos. It took forever to erase them all. The first time I saw Bloomberg ticker I was searching and watching international tv. The ticker was the most amazing thing. He probly enjoys being around groundbreakers. I had to get off my parents joined. I’m not a groundbreaker when it comes to home cooking i’ll just erase the comedy routines and enjoy staying fed instead.

Last I checked corporate income tax rates were about 10% there I believe! Makes having a satellite in NYC not that expensive anymore 😉
