Via the Facebook blog, the firm’s Commercial Director for Europe, Blake Chandlee, revealed the operation would be headed up by Damien Vincent, who will build a sales force there in the next few months. Though it’s unclear exactly what size that sales force will be, the Facebook recruitment site currently lists 11 sales-related vacancies in Paris, including ones for Spanish and Italian speakers.

According to Chandlee, a number of blue-chip firms, including the likes of Peugeot and Dell, already have campaigns running on the French language version of the site.

The social network opened its London office late last year, and has been recruiting sales staff consistently since. However, it announced in October that it plans to open a new European headquarters in Dublin, presumably for tax reasons.
