Facebook spends a projected $1 million a month on electricity. This is most likely due to the 850 million photos uploaded every month and the explosion of games and new applications on the site. So far, Facebook hasn’t made any extreme sacrifices to save energy, which means it will likely be up to consumers to take responsibility.
I don’t think facebook has made any direct commitments to offsetting the carbon footprint that is creates. According to http://www.trendsspotting.com/blog/?p=487, their carbon footprint is ridiculously high. Indirectly, facebook is a place where people form groups about green initiatives and applications like calculating your carbon footprint that can help increase awareness of carbon footprints and how to lower them. However, it would be nice to see facebook commit some of their money and energy into lowering their carbon footprint.
