First off, users in Asia are less valuable than users in Canada and the US. Facebook makes the most money of off North Americans - then Europeans - then Asian users. The culture in Asia is also different, which is why I'm saying that FB is not guaranteed to work there. Facebook is blocked in China too.

thats simply not true...fb has 65% of the addressable market in the US so there is plenty of room for growth and in Europe there are presently 800+ million internet users with 232+ million of them using facebook....again, plenty of room for growth and certainly not even close to the ceiling. again, im simply stating the facts.
