more human and
less artificial.

PURPOSE

We believe that human potential is truly limitless. This belief drives us to create technology that helps break down any barrier that divides us. We imagine a world where physical distance doesn’t limit our ability to connect and collaborate with one another and neither do our devices. A world where technology expands what’s possible for all of us and ensures our friends and colleagues are always within reach.

At Facebook Reality Labs, we bring together the brightest cross-disciplinary minds in one place to deliver our mission: build tools that help people feel connected, anytime, anywhere. Developers, researchers, engineers and designers all working together to help build a more expansive – and more inclusive – future for all of us.

Principles of Innovation

We see technology through the lens of people, and always in the service of advancing human potential. It’s why we’ve created four key principles that will keep us committed and guide us through uncharted landscapes as we move forward. Designing technology that’s transparent, meaningful, considerate, and above all, human.
