The Hyderabad office will be Facebook's first office in the Asian region. Don Faul, Director, Global On-line Operations and Meenal Balar, International Growth Marketing Manager are expected to be present during the inauguration, the communication said.
The website's new operations centre in Hyderabad will supplement operations supported out of Palo Alto in California, Dublin in Ireland, and a recently-announced location in Austin, Texas.

Facebook, which has more than 400 million active users worldwide and nearly 8 million subscribers in India, would reportedly invest USD 150 million in the initial phases.
According to a senior state government official, Facebook has been allotted about 50,000 sq ft space and is going to recruit close to 500 people for running its operation.

Facebook has also said it's expecting to build a world- class team to support a growing number of users, advertisers and developers from India and across the world.
