Facebook aims to earn big revenues from Indian SMBs as the user base reaches 500M
With approximately 500 M users India can become one of the biggest markets for Facebook. However one cannot expect the user base to be completely translated into a bigger source of revenue. However, Facebook sees immediate revenue opportunities by targeting the almost 50million SMBs who are becoming tech savvy and considerably rely on social media for branding.
