Facebook ‘amazed’ by amount of talent in Israel

(JNS.org) One of Facebook’s top executives said that the social media giant, upon acquiring the Israeli technology startup Onavo, was “amazed” by the amount of talent it came across in Israel. “Facebook was amazed by the amount of talent in such a small country like Israel,” Nicola Mendelsohn – a Facebook vice president – told Israeli President Shimon Peres at a technology conference in Tel Aviv, Globes reported. Facebook’s acquisition of Onavo will enable it to establish its first headquarters in Israel. “It was a momentous decision for Facebook to open its first R&D center outside the U.S. We chose Israel in the knowledge that the best talent is found here,” Mendelsohn said.
