Slowly and steadily, Facebook is expanding in the Asia Pacific region. Having already opened offices in Singapore and India, they have opened another office in Hong Kong which is to look after the local needs and also Taiwan. Facebook's vice-president and commercial director for Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and emerging markets, Blake Chandlee said, "It's exciting for us. Hong Kong is a tremendous market for us, We're growing all over the world and the Asian region is a big, big part of that." In the Asian region, social media is expanding by the day and it is becoming a crucial region for Facebook now. It is not just the quantity but also the quality. Asia is the region which has the most number of internet users, and they are also very active online, they are blogging and using social networking sites to better themselves or for business purposes.

Another point to notice was the use of multiple platforms to go online. He mentioned that more people in the Asian region are going online using their smartphones and this is another reason for the rapid expansion in the region. In China and India, the number of people going online using smartphones are going up by the day so the penetration rate which is still quite low has every chance to go up and that is why companies related to the internet and expanding here vigorously. With Facebook expanding here, you can expect more services form them to suit the Asian people, which will result in more people having reasons to get online here.
