facebook: stop the language nonsense (part 3)

If you thought Facebook’s language incompetence could not get worse, you’re wrong.

I received a couple Facebook notifications today in French, from people who live in Flanders. Facebook, this is the 21st century. It’s really not that hard to see that Belgium has, in fact, three official languages, and that French is only spoken by about 40% of the population. So if your software is really so poorly designed that it can only associate one language with a country, it would have been logical to choose Dutch, native language of almost 60% of the population.

I’m starting to think it’s time for a poll. How much longer until Facebook fixes this trio of language-related bugs?
