Facebook has drilled into China’s burgeoning software development industry to expand its range of apps despite the social network being banned in the country.

David Lim, an engineer in the firm's mobile dev division, told Bloomberg that programmers from the People’s Republic make up about 20 per cent of Facebook’s network in Asia, more than any other country in the region. According to Lim, Facebook moved into the continent by opening offices in Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Hyderabad, India.

Those who market to Asia may want to watch this development.
