Home Media Facebook Employs Almost No Black People, Very Few Women

Facebook– my enemy, as I do not understand the oversharing– is an almost all white company, full of men. According their own data, they employ almost no blacks and very few women. http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2014/06/building-a-more-diverse-facebook/

Sixty nine percent of the Facebook workforce is men, only 31% is women. Black people account for either 1% or 2% of the Facebook employees, if at all.

In other words, everyone at Facebook is Mark Zuckerberg or someone else from “The Social Network.”

There are a few Asians mixed in, but not too many.

Are we surprised? Not really. Are we saddened? Yes.
