People who have friends on Facebook from different countries encounter a problem – in what language should they write their status messages? If they use their native language, their friends from other countries will not understand anything. On the other hand, if they only write in English, for example, then it might be difficult for some of their friends to understand it. Here is the solution for multilingual Facebook friends:
Create a friends list of all the people who doesn't speak your native language, and filter out the message that they can't understand.
Let's see how to do this. [For the sake of this post I will use Hebrew as a native language, and English for friends from other countries].
Create a list of people who doesn't speak your language
To create a list of friends do the followings:
- Click 'Friends' on the left sidebar.
- Click the 'Create a List' button (it is right on the right hand side of the 'Friends' title at the top of the page – see image below).
Create a list of friends on Facebook
- You should now see a pop-up window titled 'Create New List'. Give the list a name (for example: 'doesn't speak Hebrew') and add all of your friends who doesn't speak your native language to that list.
- Click 'Create List' once you are finished.
*Note that from now on, whenever you friend someone who doesn't speak your native language you have to add him to the list*
