Facebook takes its first step in dominating the East Coast.

The largest social networking site in the world is set to open its engineering center in New York City in the first quarter of 2012. This is the first office of Facebook outside the West Coast.

The announcement was made by Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg last Friday.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg mentioned before that West Cost tech companies are starting to thrive in New York since this the ‘place they need to be.’

Facebook has its headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. and also has an office located on Madison Avenue. Only 100 people are employed at this office and works mainly on advertising sales.

The engineering office in New York will be headed by Serkan Piantino. He was the lead in the team who developed the Facebook’s News Feed and Timeline.
