Why Opera Facebook Is In Russian?

  • Can anyone explain me why Opera browser's official facebook page is in Russian? All their posts are in Russian & in comments only Russian users and also there is lots of spam from users on their page. As far as I know Opera is or at least was Norwegian company. Did they sold it to Russians?
    I asked my questions on their page & no one replied.

  • They do have Russian employees, one of whom seems to deal with much of the forum stuff. But I presume there must be another (probably several) Facebook page(s) not in Russian ... the page listed on their blogs is https://www.facebook.com/Opera/ and is not in Russian.

  • Not here. They must be trying to guess your locale and serving you the Russian version based on that. Do you use Turbo? Sometimes proxies can confuse such location services ...

    Hmm, weird. I don't use turbo. But that's still lame. Yeah, by area I'm near Russia & I understand Russian, but maybe I don't want Russian & maybe I prefer English?

  • I figured out. It was on their page "switch region". But it's still lame that for Georgia region they give us Russian language. We don't have anything common with Russia & personally I prefer if they could give us international language - English.

  • There are two Englishes there, my choice was one of them. 😛
