Facebook launches an Arabic version

Facebook has announced that has officially launched in Arabic. The California-based company already has an established user base in the Middle East, with hundred of thousands of users in places like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, and is hoping to attract even more users with their latest version.

Both Arabic and Hebrew will be available in a drop down menu, meaning that the social networking site now runs in 40 languages, with 60 more on the way.

Egypt has already seen anti-government protest movements and demonstrations organised through the site, which is a little bit more interesting than status updates about some geek from school and their rubbish little cat.
