Facebook employees, or “Facebookers” as they call themselves, have a laserlike focus on their mission: Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. That requires a lot of smart people bringing their innovative magic to work each day. It’s not easy to sustain for any organization. However, Facebook uses a smart blend of social media, face-to-face and other internal comms channels to keep Facebookers’ innovative skills at peak performance.
