The Facebook Mission
Give people the power to
share and make the world
more open and connected
Introduction

                   At Facebook, everything we do is about making the world more open
                   and connected. We think this has a profound impact on the way people
                   communicate. We strive to find authentic ways for people to connect
                   with one another as well as with businesses, brands and institutions
                   they care about. These principles guide us when developing our tools
                   and products for business. Our marketing products are constructed to
                   help people discover your brand through recommendations from their
                   friends. Facebook Ads and Sponsored Stories allow you to leverage the
                   relationships you have built with people to create word-of-mouth at scale.

                   In this guide, you’ll find an overview of these products, including
                   production guidelines and policies.
