    This is pure hype. All Facebook interns are told they are talented so they are given this package. The truth is ry is only $100k/year. Another $100k is a sign up amount and is not recurring. The remaining $100k is in stocks - and is NOT guaranteed. Read what other facebook interns say here.:www.quora/What-is-t...
