Founded in 2004 by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has nearly 50 million users and registers 250,000 new users a day, 60 percent of whom come from outside the United States.It seems now that Facebook has targeted the world’s second-largest Internet market, registering a local Web address in China.
Facebook.cn is registered by United States-based Facebook, according to search results on Wednesday on the Web site of government-backed “China Internet Network Information Center.” The “.cn” suffix is commonly used for Chinese domain names.
