January 19, Paris - Viadeo, the global professional social network with 40 million members, reports today the opening of a new office in Casablanca. Morocco is the first country in Northern Africa and within the Arabic world where Viadeo has established an office; this follows the opening of an office in Senegal in March 2011.
The membership base in Morocco already exceeds 500 000 business professionals. Viadeo enables individuals to explore new business and career opportunities as well as develop their network with other business professionals around the world. Proof of its strong potential, the membership base in Morocco has doubled in less than a year and represents the second French speaking community of the platform after France.
“Africa is a very important continent for Viadeo. We have 2 million members, including 1 million in the Maghreb region. We are proud to be the first international social network to establish regional offices” says Chams Diagne, Chief Officer of Viadeo in Africa. “Viadeo has already developed partnerships with a number of Moroccan companies such as BMCE, RMA, AXA, Peugeot, BMW, AMDI (Invest in Morocco) – these clients and others have trusted us to follow them in their recruitment strategies and communication campaigns. Morocco, with more than thirteen million of internet users and its increasing interest for social media, represents a real growth opportunity for Viadeo”
