Facebook has a "director of global real estate"? How silly is that?

"Facebook has a "director of global real estate"? How silly is that?"
Not at all. Most companies have facility managers for a single building. For a company like Facebook with offices around the world, it probably takes a team to manage all of that, hence a director to be in charge.

This kind of needless extravagance and unwarranted optimism in the future is really going to boost investor confidence, particularly in light of the IPO debacle and the losses experienced by both investors and employee-shareholders alike. This is now a publicly traded corporation, not a kid's toy. Management needs to realize that, and start thinking and acting accordingly. Are we looking here at the birth of "Enron of the Web"?
At least it's being designed as "one large room" - easily converted into warehouse space or other commercial options if the inevitable downsizing occurs...
