Facebook moving to new London offices

Facebook, the social network giant with more than 700 million global users, is strengthening its London operations.

The company is set to move to a new 36,000 square foot London office in Convent Garden.

It currently has a base in Carnaby Street, but intends to move by the start of 2012, according to reports.

The Daily Telegraph spoke with Joanna Shields, Facebook’s vice president EMEA, who said the move would signal the start of a recruitment drive.

“We are delighted to be expanding our operations in the UK with a move to a larger office in central London next year,” she explained.

Many of the big internet companies are currently looking to expand in the capital.

Google is rumoured to be eyeing new London offices in King’s Cross as it seeks to vacate its current base near Victoria station.

Twitter is also looking at new London offices.
