On top of opening a new office in Menlo Park, California, Facebook is planning to expand to Hong Kong. Coincidentally, Mark Zuckerberg recently made a trip to Beijing to visit Baidu’s headquarters.
?By continuing to build our presence in the region, Facebook will be able to directly provide full support to advertisers here and help them create and execute campaigns that will have a meaningful impact on their businesses,? stated Facebook VP and commercial director of Asia Pacific, Latin America, and emerging markets Blake Chandlee.
Facebook is banned from mainland China, but they are available in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Facebook opened an office in Singapore around September 2010.
