Facebook in Hindi

The 'Facebook for every phone' application is now available in Hindi, Malay and Vietnamese. Very soon this application will be available in many regional languages like Gujarati, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Bengali and Marathi.

Since 2011, Facebook application developers have been concentrating on exploiting all possibilities of Java technology so it fends off device barriers.
