Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, announced yesterday that he has added Hausa language, Fula, and two others, Maltese and Corsican to Facebook, making the social media platform become available in more than 100 languages.

Zuckerberg did this yesterday as he expressed his optimism that the addition has halted the disappearance of
some of the added languages. “Facebook is now available in more than 100 languages — with more than one billion people using a language other than English! Today we added Fula, Maltese and Corsican.” “Our community makes this possible.
Zuckerberg however gave reasons for the added languages, he said, ” For people to share what matters to them and see what matters to the people they care about, they need services available in a language they know. Some of the languages we’ve added don’t have meaningful presence on the internet.” “Others, like Corsican, are in danger of disappearing altogether, according to UNESCO.”
Zuckerberg is also hoping to make the platform available to people no matter where they are on the globe as he gave out his appreciative words.
He said “So thanks to everyone in our community for helping us hit this milestone of 100 languages! We’ll keep working to open up our community to everyone – no matter where they live or what language they speak.”
