Use Your Preferred Language On Facebook

Facebook was biult in English originally, and as more and more people from different countries started using Facebook,  the need to make it a multi lingual platform arose.

The Facebook team and volunteer translators have worked hard to make Facebook available in many different languages.  This has helped to improve the Facebook experience in many non-english speaking parts of the world.
