Just two weeks from its Philippines office opening, Facebook has launched another office in Malaysia.
Facebook’s Asia-Pacific vice president, Dan Neary, announced the opening Wednesday.
He said the company counts 18 million Malaysians as active users, which makes up 81% of the country’s Internet base.
Facebook said 94% of its 12 million daily users access the social network via mobile phones.
Malaysians are also a social bunch. They have 60% more friends than the global average number on Facebook, and as a country are ranked 10th in the world for having the most friends.
Like the other offices that Facebook has set up in Southeast Asia, its Malaysia office will be focused on reaching out to businesses in the country, as more start to connect with customers via their Facebook pages.
