India is Facebook’s Fastest Growing Market
“We are growing faster in India compared to the average of the rest of the world. Our primary focus right now is for the next billion people to come online and India is obviously a huge part of that,” said Adam Mosseri, vice president, product management at Facebook’s new office in Gurgaon, India.
Mosseri added, “There is a lot more work to do to ensure the product does well, there’s performance, language or the size of the app or offering video. There’s so much potential and so much work to do I worry about our ability to do enough of it fast enough.”
When India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi visited California last year, a special Town Hall meeting was organized by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and played live to users worldwide. Earlier, Facebook also bought What’s App, a company whose mobile application is wildly popular in India.
