What is the font used in the blue banner at the top of the facebook website?

We are trying to find the font to use in a newspaper design for tomorrow's paper but have been coming up with nothing. Font gurus, help!!

That looks like Lucida Grande to me, which is what's called for in the style sheet, and this sample appears to corroborate it.

Direct logo link

The 'b' in the logo doesn't have a tail which means it isn't Lucida Grande. For the record, I struck out with both whatthefont and identifont.

(It could be hand-tweaked too, since it's the logo, which would make an exact match impossible.)

Very similar: Vecta Bold

It looks hand-tweaked to me, too.

Another vote for hand-tweaked. I'm no doctor of typography, but it seems a little off: the kerning looks awkward and the curves seem inconsistent.

It's a "photoshopped" version of Klavika.
