Facebook available in 8 Indian languages on mobile

Social networking website Facebook today announced a facility for its users to access the site in eight Indian languages from mobile phones.

This will be rolled out in phases over the next few weeks, it said.
Facebook Country Growth Manager Kevin D’Souza:
With over 50 million people in India on Facebook, we want to make sure that everyone has a great Facebook mobile experience regardless of the device that they choose to use.

The languages — Gujarati, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Bengali and Marathi — have been added to the ‘Facebook for Every Phone mobile application’, which will also support Hindi, Malay and Vietnamese.

Earlier, users could access Facebook only in English. The application was originally launched in July 2011 and now works on more than 3600 Java-enabled phones around the world.
