Facebook Adds Paris Office

Dec 16, 2008

Facebook, a social networking site, is set to open a sales office in Paris as part of plans to grow across Europe, according to reports. The site’s commercial director for EMEA Blake Chandlee announced the office’s first employee Damien Vincent, from MySpace France where he was head of sales. Facebook translated the site into French in April and saw an immediate traffic boost, but it still trails in France. The Paris office comes as Facebook claims to have signed up 6.1M French users.
