According to the latest statistics, there are more than 350 million Facebook users out there. This is proof that the social networking site exerts quite an attraction on numerous users all over the world (including under 15 years old children). For the multitude of users, Facebook released a toolbar back in ‘06, a toolbar that would let you “share with your friends while browsing anywhere on the web - get notified, share content, upload photos, and update your status no matter where you are.”

The catch is that at the time the toolbar was available in just one language – English, what else. The second catch was that it was available only to Firefox users. And as we all know, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer still holds the lion’s share of the market.


You can now forget about the catches I’ve mentioned above. The popular social networking site has announced the release of an Internet Explorer version of the Facebook toolbar. The popular social networking site has also announced that it enhanced the toolbar’s language support – it now supports an additional 14 languages. These languages are, in alphabetic order: Arabic, Chinese (simple and traditional), Danish, Dutch , German, Spanish (Spain and international), French, Hebrew, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Swedish and Turkish.

Facebook Software Engineer, Yishan Wong, explains how the toolbar can help: “You can use the toolbar to easily visit the most common sections and applications on Facebook, including your home page, profile and Inbox. You also can see how many friend requests, Inbox message and event and group invitations you have from icons near the top of your browser, and then click to view them. When you find an interesting news story, funny video or other content you like on the web, click the "Share" button on the toolbar to share it with your friends on your Facebook. The toolbar even gives you a quick way to upload photos to your profile.”
