    Hello. Kind of a strange issue. I just got the new iPad (new from the apple store) and grabbed some games (words with friends, family feud etc..). Whenever I choose to connect through facebook with one of these, the facebook screen that pops up is in a different language. Strange because everything else is in english. It looks like it's using facebook mobile to do this, but when I actually go to m.facebook.com it's in english also. Not a big deal I suppose as all I really need to do is enter my facebook email and password and hit ok, but it bothers me that it's doing it. Im a complete noob at this, so maybe theres just a simple setting I have to change. Any help would be appreciated...thanks!

    It's in Malay. Perhaps uninstall and download it again.

    Tried that...happens on all apps that I try to use FB to login through..
    Yet when I go to FB mobile or any other website or whatever it's in English..not a big deal I guess but it really does annoy me lol.

    Me too. Have you found out an answer?

    Well mine has started doing the same thing. It just happened 2 days ago, but I have tried uninstalling everything and it still does that. The language code on the ipad is set up correctly. It is also set-up correctly on facebook. I can't seem to find a thread that has an answer to this problem. Mine language (passed on google translate) is Indonesian. I first noticed the change on Zynga Poker, but it has now impacted every app that I use to login with facebook. If you find an answer please post!

    I have voiced the same issue

    In fact, I tried installing Socialcam because many of my FB-friends have posted with it, but felt it was a scam as the FB-authentication was in a crazy language. Please post if anyone finds a solution!

    I have the same problem with both the iPhone and iPad. The problem seems to be IP based. If on wifi (Comcast) the facebook login screen is in a foreign language. If I switch to 3G (AT&T) it's pops up in English. Facebook recently changed their API around, maybe that has something to do with it.

    Glad to know what causes the problem. Can we have a real fix rather than a work-around?

    Same experience exactly on Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, an Android device, so it is a device independent phenomenon.

    Yesterday FB was having a ton of issues. My BFF and I had problems with log ins on our iPhones and iPads. Try again today. You may have been experiencing an issue on their end not yours
