Up ’til now, local outfit Ninemsn has been responsible for selling the company’s Australian display ads.

Ninemsn has been Facebook’s local advertising representative since last December after it was handed responsibility for selling some of the site’s Australian display advertising packages. Other social networking sites such as MySpace and Bebo already have Australian reps; with the move tipped towards further expansion of the Facebook empire it’s natural that Facebook would want a local contingent.

Facebook has been tipped to reach $30 million in Australia revenue this year.

So what are Facebook looking for?
A head of sales, an account executive, an account manager and a sales planner, all of whom are to be based in Sydney.
