Facebook in Nepal has been very successful and trendy just like in other countries. The idea of connecting with each other in a common social platform and being updated and sharing stuffs via www.facebook.com has been really admired by Nepalese so far. Before Facebook, Hi5 was doing this part but not to this extent, not so close either. In Nepal, Facebook must be the most popular social platform and though ideas are emerging to replace Facebook or give a good competition, none of them have been that successful so far.
Now, Facebook In Nepal can be used in the Nepali language as well. Facebook has been facilitating it for the Facebook users to view and use Facebook in their own language in as many countries as possible. Fortunately, it is possible in Nepal too with the help of Facebook there in Nepal. To use Facebook in Nepali / Nepalese Language, the following steps must be carefully followed:

If you don’t want to change the language for Facebook as a whole but want to use Nepali fonts for typing in messages, statuses, comments or notes, there is an alternative to the above option. Simply go to control panel on your computer and change the keyboard language to Nepali, in region and languages (For this you need to have that particular Language pack installed on your computer.) You can then type in Nepali. If you have to switch between Nepali and English or other languages, you can add a language bar at the taskbar.
If you don’t know how to type in Nepali language, there are plenty of Nepali Unicode sites which allows you to type in the roman format with English font and it will be transformed to Nepali font in the window aside. This text can then be copied in the messages or chat or statuses or notes.
