Meta recruiter asking for internal references - What does this mean?

Hey everyone, I tried searching online about this but couldn't find much info. I did virtual onsites with Meta this week and the recruiter called me asking if I knew anyone at Meta that could be used as an internal reference.

Is this generally a good sign and does this mean I'm going to the HC?

    If you have done an interview, this should be a good sign: It's probably because you did well enough to be in consideration of an offer, and they want to deepen the packet. A tentative congratulations!

    I recommend going through this thread as well: "Can you please suggest me any names from Meta to put as references?"

    Yes, a good sign. I gave the names of 2 people I worked with at Pinterest who now worked at Meta (and gave them a heads-up about it as well).

Meta Platforms, Inc. is an American multinational technology conglomerate based in Menlo Park, California. The company owns 3 of top 4 social networks in the world: Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. More than 3.5 billion people use at least one of the company's core products every month.
