Facebook's popularity could soon irk its neighbors.

As the Palo Alto-based social-networking site prepares to shifts its headquarters to neighboring Menlo Park, a new report shows that Facebook's may significantly increase traffic in the area and on Highway 101.

Facebook plans to house about 6,600 employees at the new expansive campus just a short drive away from its current location.

This past summer it already moved 2,000 workers to the new location, while housing the majority of its employees at its Palo Alto campus.

The new report shows that traffic will be dramatically increased as the new employees begin to descend on the neighborhood.

The added traffic will also impact local schools, wildlife, air quality and public services.
