- Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has offered his staff the opportunity to work from home on a permanent basis.
- The move gives employees the chance to relocate, but their salaries would be adjusted according to living costs.
- Zuckerberg expects half of Facebook’s workforce to take up the offer of working from home permanently over the next 5-10 years.

But he also dashed a Silicon Valley dream: that tech workers would be able to take their generous salaries with them as they flee the Bay Area’s crushing housing costs, dirty sidewalks and crowded roadways.
