    my Facebook page is suddenly in Japanese


    Tonight my facebook page is suddenly in Japanese on my laptop--but not on my phone (facebook lite). So I used my phone to change my facebook password, and I've run a Malwarebytes scan on my laptop which found no threats.

    On the laptop I can get to the facebook login page, click on 'English' down the bottom, and the login page then shows in English. But when I login and move on to my page it is still in Japanese, and because it's in Japanese (which I do not speak) I cannot navigate it to look for the language setting.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Found the language options are actually listed on the page (under the ads, right hand side), so I didn't have to somehow find my way through to settings. Cheers my Facebook page is suddenly in Japanese :)

    :)

    Switching Japanese Windows with English menus


    Yes, I do mean those keys. I tried just switching to Japanese keyboard, as you suggested, but those keys didn't work. Also, the selection key is normally the spacebar in Japan but I could only get IME to work with the Tab key (for those who aren't familiar with Japanese typing: you type in Roman characters, then press a selection key and it steps you through a list of options for the word you are typing in Japanese characters). Did you get the special keys to work as they do in native Japanese mode?

    It may well be that I was missing something, although I did try every option I could think of. In any event, as I said, I gave in and now have Japanese Windows running with English menus and everything seems to be working perfectly.
    Thanks,

    Mike

    my Facebook page is suddenly in Japanese

    Facebook pages.

    I like to follow my facebook 'likes' or favorite non- friend pages, not just my friends. I just wanted to know if there was a way to pin any of my 'like' pages' to my start page as a tile, like I would do with any of my contacts. If there isn't
    a way, there should be. It would make the phone closer to a real 'facebook phone'.
