US-based social media giant Facebook announced on Thursday the opening of a branch office in Jakarta with the expectation of working more closely with the country'€™s businesses.

Indonesia has the fourth-most Facebook users in the world, with around 65 million users.

'€œSetting up an office here will allow us to work closer with some of the biggest advertisers, the advertising agencies and SMEs [small and medium enterprises] that need an education on how to market their products,'€ Facebook Asia-Pacific vice president Dan Neary said in Jakarta.

'€œWe have 65 million users in Indonesia -- that's 90 percent of everybody that'€™s online. We'€™re also focusing on the 80 percent of Indonesians who are still not connected and so there'€™s lot of opportunities for us to collaborate with the government and public sector.'€

Facebook's Jakarta office is located in the Pacific Place building in Sudirman Central Business District, South Jakarta.(dic)
