Facebook to launch operations in China

Beijing : Facebook, the world’s largest social networking website, is aiming to enter the Chinese market and has hired a domestic head-hunting company to recruit business managers for the country, a media report has said.

Facebook wants to hire a general manager based in Beijing to oversee its operations in China, Global Times reported Friday.

The headquarters of the networking site will be Beijing, which will start its operations in probably three months.

But, according to local media reports, Facebook may now just establish a research institute or a game lab for creating products for the western market. The products designed by the lab will not be launched in the Chinese market for a while.

Meanwhile, an employee of the recruiting company said Facebook first needs to set up a management team and begin its relations with the Chinese government, which is still in its preliminary stages.
