Not content with owning the English speaking world, Facebook.com has announced a Spanish version of its popular social network service. Facebook users can change over to Spanish starting on Monday when the option will appear in their account settings.
Facebook's main rival MySpace already supports Spanish, French, German and Italian, including a site for U.S. Spanish speakers and another for French Canadians.

60% of Facebook's 64 million users live outside the United States including 7 million that live in Canada (suggesting that nearly a third of Canadians use it). More to the point, 2.8 million of those international users live in Latin America or Spain plus there is a growing population of Spanish-speaking people who live inside the United States.
