As a ROSEdu member and former Facebook intern, I get asked this a lot,
so it is probably relevant: Facebook does contribute to open source
quite a lot   and they started the very exciting OpenCompute
There is even an Open Source Team at Facebook, I was part of it as an
intern last summer. Their function is dual: when they are not
contributing to open source projects, they help other Facebook engineers
open source their projects or contributions. And they're a very fun
bunch to be with, as is all of Facebook :)
