日前彭博社援引消息人士称,Facebook(脸谱网、脸书)将在北京设立销售办事处。报道指出,尽管Facebook入华一事尚处在悬而未决的状态,但中国网络广告海外投放市场的潜滋暗长,是吸引Facebook设立办事处的主要原因。

尽管从2009年以来,Facebook就被踢出了中国大陆,但很多来自中国的公司和开发者运用Facebook平台进行全球市场推广。事实上,Facebook一直没有放弃中国市场,这一点和更加无奈的谷歌形成了鲜明的对比。在被赶出大陆之后,Facebook在中国香港设立了分支机构,帮助大陆的中国企业利用Facebook进行国际品牌推广。

Facebook Inc said it may consider opening a sales office in China to provide more support to local advertisers who use the website to reach customers overseas.

While Vaughan Smith, Facebook's vice president of corporate development, told Reuters it was exploring ways to provide even more support locally, he did not comment on how soon it plans to be in China.

Facebook currently has a Hong Kong sales office with a staff of 30 to 40 people who deal with advertisers locally and in mainland China, where its services are blocked. The sales office would, for the first time, put Facebook employees inside mainland China.

Bloomberg on Monday reported that Facebook could open an office in China within a year, citing a person familiar with the matter.

The world's largest social networking company is in talks to lease space in the Fortune Financial Center in Beijing's central business district, Bloomberg said.
