Facebook continues to improve the experience for its users who speak Hebrew, following up its introduction of language-specific names with the display of posts in Hebrew from right-to-left, as the language actually reads, rather than left-to-right.
Facebook is beginning to roll out language-specific names for users, allowing their names to be displayed in the native languages of a select few countries.
Facebook is targeting businesses in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa that have not yet advertised on the social network with ads directing them to the Facebook Start to Success Program, which offers free support for first-time advertisers, as well as a £25 ($39.15) credit toward advertising.
UPDATED 4:05 p.m. ET: Mobile messaging application WhatsApp denied a report in TechCrunch saying that it was in talks with Facebook about being acquired by the social network, telling AllThingsD, “The TechCrunch article is a rumor and not factually accurate. We have no further information to share at the moment.”
