Popular social media platform, Facebook, with over 1.8 billion users worldwide is now available in Hausa language.

To switch your language setting to Hausa navigate to your settings, click on “Language” on the left menu and then edit the “what language do you want to use Facebook in” setting.

Facebook is also available in some other languages: Malagasy in Madagascar, Tamazight in Morocco, Somali in Somalia, Sardinian in Italy, Irish in Ireland, Silesian in Poland and Czech Republic, and Faroese in Faroe Island.

Today Facebook is delighted to add Hausa to its list of languages so that people who speak Hausa can now connect with their friends on Facebook.

Back when Facebook started, the team created the Translate Facebook app so that the Facebook community could translate the service and it could then be available to people all over the world. To this day, that is still the case.
