Facebook opens a sales office in Hong Kong

Facebook will open a sales office in Hong Kong, in a move to tap the region’s (Asia Pacific) booming Internet scene, according to a report published in local media.

The new office at Hong Kong will fully service brands, companies and agencies in Hong Kong and Taiwan that want to advertise or launch marketing campaigns on Facebook. Jayne Leung, a former Google executive, will head Facebook's North Asia operations.

Facebook has been banned in mainland China since 2009, the world's largest Internet market at over 450 million users. There are many Facebook like clones already in the country to fill the void.
To take advantage of their developing and high growth nature, Facebook opened offices in Singapore and India in 2010. --------
