Yesterday, Monday, reports revealed shocking numbers about the employee salaries of the social networking giant Facebook.

The Business Insider website was able to obtain information about Facebook salaries from thousands of work visa applications that the company submitted to the US government during 2020, as companies must disclose salary information. However, the information is limited and lacks the salaries of executives, and it does not include grants, company stocks owned by employees, or the effect of experience in determining wages.

Essentially, all of Facebook's key workers earn a 6-figure salary in a year, but some workers earn more than others. 

Business Insider stated that the largest salaries for non-executive positions within Facebook are in its core engineering and marketing operations.

According to the site, the salaries depend on the position. However, it depends on where the worker resides. For example, a software engineer in New York City earns $160,000, while another in Rhode Island or Texas earns $118,000 annually.

Software engineer: from $118,000 to $270,000
