Facebook has expanded its advertising inventory in the country as it looks to expand its business there and attract more advertisers.
The social network said Tuesday it is adding an additional 3,000 ads per month to its ads in China and plans to add another 2,000 advertisers to its ad-based business in 2017.
Facebook said it would also begin expanding the number of ads available for people who visit the site from China in 2017 and 2018.
Facebook did not provide a timeline for when these changes would take effect.
China is one of the biggest markets for Facebook, which was the first company to set up shop there.
But it is also a target for a crackdown on social media that has been met with heavy opposition from Chinese authorities, who accuse the social network of aiding in the spread of illegal propaganda.
Facebook’s advertising revenue in China was $1.2 billion in the fourth quarter of last year, according to data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.
That number rose to $2.6 billion in Q1 2017 and is expected to rise to $3.4 billion in 2019, according the company.
Facebook is the largest online advertising platform in China, with more than 400 million users.
