Facebook office in Malaysia!


I am shocked when I read the factsheet of Facebook, check out this link;http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?factsheet. It is an official info by the Facebook corporation which is valued at over 25 billion US Dollar.

Their main headquarter office is at Palo Alto, California, United States. There are also nine other branch offices of Facebook in the country. However, the most interesting fact is that Facebook had currently 11 international offices, and one of it is in Malaysia, my country!!! That is the second office of Facebook in Asia, which the other one is in Tokyo, Japan.

I didn’t expect that, and I’m very surprised to see that! The office is at Neo Damansara, a recently-built modern shop offices in Damansara, Selangor. Eventhough the office is small, but still it is a good beginning for a Facebook’s office in Malaysia. The offices of Facebook are designed in such a way that it is fun, and promotes interaction just like the main objective of the website, to enhance social networking.

Too bad, I don’t have a picture of the office in Malaysia. Here is how the shop offices at Neo Damansara looks like. If I got the chance to pass by the area, i will definitely go check out its office there. Too bad, I seldom go to Damansara, it’s a bit too far from my house, but I have seen the shop offices before. The design is playful, suitable for facebook, but I just don’t like it.

They seems to be also hiring software engineer from Malaysia. Too bad that I’m not in that profession, if not, I would definitely apply, it would be a great opportunity of working in Facebook instead of just playing it! Haha…must be having good salary too…the corporation keeps growing bigger, and the active users now have increased to over 600 million people. That is a lot!!!

Ahh…no wonder Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook decided to open a branch office in Malaysia. It is because many Malaysians are playing it. Do you also know that Malaysians are the heaviest users of social networking sites  in the world (9 hours per week) and having the most online friends (average 233 friends per person)?

Malaysia is also one of the top 20 countries with most number of Facebook users, almost reaching 10 million despite the total population of Malaysia of less than 29 million. This means that one out of three Malaysians is having Facebook account! That is a lot! So, Malaysians are big fans of Facebook, and no wonder Mark is interested in opening one office here!


Update – 8th May 2016.

The post above which was written in 2010 isn’t partially correct as that office back then was only partly serving for Facebook and is still not one of Facebook’s formal international offices. However, in April 2016, Facebook officially opened its 9th Asian offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in KL Sentral area. And yes, the fact still remains the same that there is finally a Facebook office in Malaysia which is a good thing!

Company Info

Above is the link from Facebook newsroom page and in its company info section, Facebook has officially included Kuala Lumpur as one of the locations for its international offices around the world. Their office in KL is small (still a start-up here) but it has the same cool ambience with the other popular Facebook offices (particularly their awesome looking headquarter office back in US) with interesting design in this workspace.

  2. Actually, the reason Facebook opened an office here is because they acquired a local startup Octazen. You can read about it here http://techcrunch.com/2010/02/19/octazen-what-the-heck-did-facebook-just-buy-exactly-and-why/

  4. Hey sorry for hijacking this blog 🙂

    We’ve been getting quite a number of people coming to our office asking about their compromised pages/accounts.

    Just to be clear, we do NOT handle those cases here in Malaysia as we’re purely an engineering team.

    If you’re looking for solutions to this, go to:
    https://www.facebook.com/help

    Search for keywords such as “hacked account” or something relevant and you’ll come with the help on what needs to be done.
