500 Million People and Growing. The Facebook Conversation turns to Commerce.


Facebook is the 3rd largest country in the world

Facebook recently announced that they have exceeded half a billion members.

That makes them the third largest country in the world behind China and India.

It seems obvious that with a population that large, Facebook would be a great place to open a store.  Just as expanding your retail presence into a new country requires understanding the unique nature of the community, applying the appropriate marketing techniques and creating a relevant merchandise assortment, your approach to retail in Facebook requires a unique approach.
