Vice president, Asia-Pacific Dan Neary broke the news in a Facebook post from Makati, Philippines:

I’m excited to share that Facebook opened its first office in the Philippines today. More than 49 million Filipinos access Facebook every month to connect with their friends and loved ones–this is over 91 percent of the internet population. The Philippines is a highly engaged, mobile-first nation filled with people who are creative, entrepreneurial and have a strong sense of community.

Filipinos have been sharing the unique moments that matter on Facebook with their friends and family, be it life milestones or a trending video. Two in three Filipinos are connected a business page on Facebook, and they’re using the platform to discover new brands and products.

Our team has already been partnering closely with businesses–small and large–in the Philippines, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to grow together with our partners there. #FB4PH
