Facebook data center

A study done for Facebook, released today, shows the economic impact of its data center in Prineville.  The report shows that over the last five years Facebook brought 651 jobs to Central Oregon.

Research shows the ripple effect from the Prineville-area jobs was felt statewide, for a total of almost 3,600 jobs. The study says every ten jobs at Facebook-Prineville drive another 14 jobs on other sectors of the state’s economy.
