Facebook Launches In 6 Indian Languages

Posted May 8, 2009

Social network company Facebook.com has launched their service in 6 new Indian languages.  These languages include Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Telegu, and Malayalam.  The Facebook page that people in India connect from are asked “Do you speak Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil or Malayalam? Now you can use Facebook in any of these languages to connect with your Indian friends all over the world.?

Last year, Mark Zuckerberg went on a spiritual journey tour around India after some major changes were made at the company.  One of the co-founders had recently left and the company was getting tons of funding. Fortunately the addition of the Indian languages may encourage more users in India to join the social network.  Worldwide, about 770 million people speak the 6 languages that were added.
