According to TOI, the social networking giant Facebook has announced that the site from now onwards will be available in eight Indian languages from mobile phones in the country in a move to boost its appeal with new demographics in the country’s 1.2 billion population. This will be rolled out in phases over the next few weeks time.

With this, Facebook users can access the site by using ‘Facebook for Every Phone mobile application’ in three national languages – Hindi, Malay and Vietnamese and seven local Indian languages – Gujarati, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Bengali and Marathi.

“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,” Facebook’s Country Growth Manager Kevin D’Souza said in a statement.
