Meta (Facebook) does not currently offer public tours. However, it's still worth swinging by for a photo in front of the meta logo (formerly the thumbs up sign).

Unfortunately, there’s not much to see on campus without an employee escort, but visitors still love this spot for a quick snap next to the iconic ‘like’ sign.

Just a few minutes outside of Los Altos, no trip to Silicon Valley is complete without a photo in front of Facebook (now meta) HQ.
