Facebook to Build its Own Data Centers

Facebook, with 750 million users, a new Skype video chat and an ever increasing amount of data sharing, has reached the point of building its own data centers rather than leasing. Mark Zuckerberg announced this week that Facebook would be doing exactly that. The idea has been kicked around all year, but with recent additional resources being added, it has now become a priority.

Facebook's data center plans could also be a big economic boom for the locations where those data centers will eventually be built.
