Facebook App Centre in India, 6 other nations
Facebook has launched its application centre — App Centre — in India and six other countries, a move that will help users to find games, music services and media content easily.
The social networking giant had launched the App Centre in the US last month. In addition, Facebook said that it will be launching App Centre to users in Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey “in the coming weeks”.
The launch is part of a plan to expand its reach to a large number of Facebook users, with 80 per cent residing outside the US and Canada. Facebook has over 900 million monthly active users across the world.
Facebook also added a localisation tool to the App Dashboard that would allow developers to translate the names and descriptions of their apps into other languages.
