The world's biggest social networking website,
Facebook, opened its new African office in Bryanston,
Johannesburg, recently. The new building was
custom-designed for the popular networking platform.
Nunu Ntshingila, head of Facebook Africa, said its
continental operations had expanded considerably from
its initial five staff members and that the company
needed bigger premises, which catered for Facebook's
special needs. The social network giant had previously
rented office space in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.
The new building in Bryanston houses local Facebook
employees, and boasts meeting rooms that enables staff
to connect with Facebook's international team.
The office even caters for young moms returning to work,
with a unique mother's room. Each of the building's
three floors are adorned with local artwork. ¡V Source:
