New Facebook Feature: Now Post In Multiple Languages On The Social Network
Billions of people use Facebook to share their day-to-day activities, instant thoughts and memories. But language becomes a problem to many of them. While Facebook has 1.5 billion active users, only 50% of them speak English. So, what about the others? How can they communicate with the rest? And what if you want to converse with a Non-English person? It becomes very difficult to Google translate every single piece of message and answer it accordingly. Hence, Facebook has recently come up with an effective solution to this problem. Now, with the help of this new Facebook feature, you can have your post translated in multiple languages, i.e, 44 languages that people generally speak. Amazing, eh?
This new Facebook feature is nothing new to the celebrities and business owners who have pages of their own. The social media giant offered to translate posts of page owners into foreign languages and it was quite a hit. But now, millions of normal users will also have the opportunity to translate their Facebook post in multiple languages so that they can communicate well with people who speak a different tongue. In this, Facebook is planning to expand its social media outreach and bring the world together which is segregated by language barriers.
How can you use this new Facebook feature to translate your posts to multiple languages?
The new Facebook feature will use neural networks to translate posts into various other languages. These are the web of hardware and software inspired by the network of neurons in the brain. They will make machine translation as much error free as possible. In recent years, neural networks have been quite efficient in handling complex tasks like identifying people from photos and recognizing voices. Now, they will help the machine to understand the sequence of the words that they translate, catch their meaning and make the translation error free. However, if you feel that the translation is incorrect as Facebook is gradually going to improve in this translation efforts, you can always edit and alter the words to make your posts error free.
Impact of the new Facebook feature on the social media network
Millions of people will get to communicate with each other in spite of language barriers. Language won’t be a problem anymore while conversing with a person from another country speaking another tongue. People will come closer in the social media and develop friendships across geographical and linguistic barriers. Business interactions will become more effective. For example, a Chinese businessman can now communicate with his German consumers just by translating his posts into their native language and vice versa. In short, the basic aim of the social media giant, i.e. to bring people closer and develop strong relationships in spite of all differences, will slowly reach its destination.
So are you ready for the language revolution that Facebook is planning to bring about?
