Facebook opens Indonesia office

Facebook has opened an office in Indonesia, the Jakarta Post is reporting.

Indonesia is the social network’s fourth largest market globally, where it has 65 million users.

Indonesia was the only top five country for Facebook where it did not have a presence on the ground.

Dan Neary, Facebook’s Asia-Pacific vice president, said: “Setting up an office here will allow us to work closer with some of the biggest advertisers, the advertising agencies, and SMEs [small and medium enterprises] that need an education on how to market their products. We have 65 million users in Indonesia — that’s 90 percent of everybody that’s online.”

He added: “We’re also focusing on the 80 per cent of Indonesians who are still not connected, and so there’s lot of opportunities for us to collaborate with the government and public sector.”
