    Facebook is seeking to add a new office building to its Northern California headquarters.

    The San Jose Mercury News reports Saturday that building permits compiled by Buildzoom show Facebook plans to erect the 465,000 square-foot (43,200 square-meter) building at its campus in Menlo Park, California.

    The plans come as a number of technology companies including Mountain View-based Google and Cupertino-based Apple are seeking space to expand in the region.

    John Yandle, executive managing director of a commercial realty brokerage office in Santa Clara, says this part of the San Francisco Bay Area has never seen so many companies embarking on major expansions at the same time.
