Facebook Targets China, World’s Biggest Web Market

From Reuters:

Online social network site .com has launched a version targeting mainland Chinese Web surfers to compete with local and overseas rivals in the world’s largest market.

Facebook users in mainland China accessing the website are redirected to zh-cn.facebook.com, which is in the simplified version of Chinese used on the mainland.

A version in traditional Chinese, the script used in Hong Kong and Taiwan, is also available.

A spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
