Facebook Opens in Hyderabad, India to Serve 8 Million

Facebook has announced the opening of an office in Hyderabad in southern India to support the roll out of Facebook to the large India-based population. Already Facebook has 8 million users in India. The company is now looking to recruit online sales and operations teams which are to be formed there.

Don Faul, Director of Global Online Operations said in an official announcement on the Facebook blog, “By having multiple support centers in a variety of time zones, we can provide better round-the-clock, multi-lingual support. The new offices come at a significant time in our international growth. 70% of people using Facebook are outside the US and are accessing the service from more than 70 languages.”

Facebook recently also opened a new office in Austin, Texas and has operations in Palo Alto, Calfornia and Dublin, Ireland.
