According to a post on allfacebook, Facebook applications will soon allow creators the option of tagging them by language.
I have seen several applications with a Welsh theme (e.g. ones to send Welsh things to your friends – leek anyone?), but none in the Welsh language. As I detest almost all Facebook applications, this is perhaps not surprising – are there any/many?
In other strange Facebook news, I just received my first Welsh-language friend request. What makes it strange is not that it is in Welsh, or that I have no idea who the person is (or that anyone would want to be my friend – thanks!) but that it is a request to a dummy account that I use only for research purposes. It contains no “personal” data at all, no picture, and an obviously silly name (a character from a Welsh childrens story). Are people really that desperate for friends – or did some cruel parent really name their child after that character?
Of course it is quite exciting to see the invitation in Welsh, strange or otherwise.
Thanks to Mike for the applications story.
