Facebook Names First UK Staffer

09 October 2007

PALO ALTO, California: US online social networking site Facebook has begun its UK invasion with the appointment of Yahoo's commercial director, Blake Chandlee, to the post of British sales chief.

Chandlee is expected to build up Facebook's UK sales force and work directly with agencies and advertisers to exploit commercial opportunities from the site's rapidly growing popularity outside the US.
