Hey,

do you mean from AndroidPIT or in general?

For AndroidPIT: simply like our english Facebook page instead of the french one:

https://www.facebook.com/weareandroidpit/

In general: no, you simply need to follow english sources ;)

hello :)
i can understand your suggestion, but your link up here goes to:
facebook.com / AndroidPIT.fr ...
which is the french facebook page, can i change a part of that address to go to the english page?
you are right about the reason: liking the french page delivers (of course) french on my facebook ...
thx !!!

Hey,

that is really interesting, as that is the URL for the english page (thinking)

When you clicked the link, what info is in the URL?

And try searching for AndroidPIT in Facebook and you should see all domains. Simply chose the english version and like it :)

hello :)
when i saw i ended up in the french part again, i looked for androidpit, and it gave ONLY the french site and the spanish site ( androidpit.es) ...
this is exactly what was to see on the address:
https www facebook com AndroidPIT.fr /? brand_redir = 136151036420500
there is a link but that link goes to the androidpit website (in english) but that's not the facebook page...
it would amaze me if there was a french, but no english facebook page... i havent found it yet!

hello Bastian :)

i tried it twice, i understand the result :)
in chrome i opened an icognito windows, started facebook, copied your link...
because he DOES NOT find it he opens the last link about androidpit that was in the search list
in my case being the .es spanish site ...
so: sorry to say no english site ... i really think there is no english site to be find on facebook...
i've tried several times, and i never found one...
i guess there is one somewhere around... over to you ;) !
thx !

Well there is definitely an english page for AndroidPIT, I am taking care of the page ;)

I just found out that Facebook is adjusting the language to your region.

You can switch the language with the following steps:

Open the AndroidPIT page in Facebook
Below the header picture you will see the button "more"
Click on it and choose "Switch region"
Switch to an english speaking region

Now you should be able to see the page in english ;)

Sorry for the confusion :)

it works :)
thank you :)

i have noticed many times that when it comes to belgium, french is automatically chosen.
but :( ... belgium consists of two parts and we, the dutch, are always merged with The Netherlands,
also speaking dutch, this way belgium speaking dutch almost never exists :( ...
something to work on :) !
thx for the help :)
