The  office in Hyderabad will support users, advertisers and developers in India and all over the world., the company said in a statement on Monday. At present eight  foreign firms  are lodged in  Hyderabad whose Indian employees work on everything from writing software codes to providing customer services at cheaper salaries than in developed nations such as the United States.

Facebook, which lets users connect and share information with friends online, has emerged as one of the Internet’s most popular destinations, challenging established players like Yahoo Inc and Google. More than 8 million of Facebook’s total users are in India at the moment.

Internet search engines run by Google and Microsoft are increasingly interested in incorporating the growing trove of user-generated content from social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter into their search results in a bid to boost online advertising revenue.

In the initial stages  the  firm will  recruit a small team in India, and anticipates further growth as the office expands.
