Bono moved Facebook HQ to Ireland!

What comes to your mind when you listen the word Ireland? Whisky, some pubs and... Bono from U2? Well you are correct! it seems that U2 frontman has a great influence on his country and according to rumors, played an important role urging Facebook to move its EMEA HQ in Ireland!


This comes from Sonia Flynn, Director of User Operations Facebook for EMEA, Latin America and Asia-Pasific, while being in an event in Dunlin Web Summit. According to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg had Switzerland at the top of her list but Bono made her reconsider. As you can imagine, Ireland's soft taxing system also played an important role in the matter however - according to Flynn, Facebook would have surely chosen Switzerland if it weren't for Bono's intervention.
