Hyderabad: Facebook is all set to start its India operations. According to a company release, one week from now it would be opening an office in Austin, Texas, it will set up an additional support center in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, the capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh.
The company’s India office will be its first in Asia. Earlier, FaceBook established office in Dublin, Ireland over a year ago.
In the statement, the company says both offices will allow them to better serve its users, advertisers and developers.
Facebook added that it is currently recruiting people to staff the online sales and operations teams for both office locations.
Don Faul, director of global online operations at Facebook, in the Facebook blog post said that having multiple support centers in a variety of time zones helps Facebook provide better round-the-clock, multi-lingual support.
According to the company, seventy percent of the people using Facebook are now located outside the U.S. and are accessing the service from more than 70 languages. In India alone, Facebook says it has more than 8 million people actively connecting on Facebook.
A quick glance on Wikipedia teaches us that Hyderabad houses many computer software companies and consulting firms, so much so that the city is sometimes referred to as “Cyberabad”.
Microsoft apparently has established its largest R&D campus outside the US in the ‘City of Pearls’, and other names on the list of companies with one or multiple offices in Hyderabad include Google, Alcatel Lucent, Amazon, HP, Dell, IBM, Motorola, Oracle and Deloitte.
