Facebook is unarguably the biggest social networking website with over two billion monthly active users and since it covers a huge demographic from all over the world, it’s only natural for the platform to be available in scores of languages.
When you create a Facebook account, the same language that’s selected on your device is set to your default language on Facebook too. While, this would work for most of the people, it’s possible that either Facebook picked up the incorrect language or you simply want to change the primary language on Facebook.
In either case, here is how to change the language on Facebook through its website and app for Android or iOS. But before you go ahead, keep the following things in mind.
- Changing Facebook’s language doesn’t impact the default language of your device (computer or mobile).
- Changing the Facebook language on any one device doesn’t modify the language settings on another device where you’re logged into your account. For example, if you change the language on Facebook using your PC, it won’t change the language on your phone; you’ll need to do that yourself.
