Facebook converts their PHP code to C++ in order to save on performance.

Because PHP is best for such site. Facebook uses other languages too for facial recognition in photos, patter recognition in Page icons and for a lot of other stuff. After google facebook code has the most lines. I don't remember number of lines in code.
