Facebook in six Indian languages now

Facebook, leading social networking site, launches its service in 6 Indian languages for making more impact in India. Now, you can scrap your buddies in Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, or Malayalam through facebook. Facebook launches service in different Indian languages to compete with Orkut in India. From the 4th may of the current year, the service is available for all its users as user's home page display a message "Do you speak Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil or Malayalam? It was expecting to add indian flavour to face book as the Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg visited Indis last year. In India, facebook is not so popular as Orkut but this addition will definately help to popularize the facebook in India as well. Facebook’s user base has already crossed 200 million mark and this step will help to increase more facebook users. But after the start of the service by facebook, some people says that it will not increase facebook users as expected by facebook because most of the internet savvy in India uses English for their communication. so it will be interesting to know that this step will increase more users for facebook or not in future??
