Facebook CEO and founder, Mark Zuckerberg announced this in a post he made on his Facebook page.

He said:

I'm excited to share that Facebook's 7th data center -- powered by 100% renewable energy -- will be in Los Lunas, New Mexico here in the United States.

Data centers deliver all of Facebook's services to you. They're some of the most complex machines ever created. The Los Lunas Data Center will be one of the most advanced and energy-efficient data centers in the world.

We're glad to be investing in New Mexico, to become part of the Los Lunas community, and to continue building the massive infrastructure that connects our global community.

Facebook data center houses thousands of computer servers, which are networked together and linked to the outside world through fiber optic cables. Every time you share information on Facebook, the servers in these data centers receive the information and distribute it to your network of friends.

Facebook first data center is located in Prineville, Oregon.
