English only!
Hello, While on my Facebook page on Wed., 12/23/2015, my home page came up in "Georgian" language for unknown reason. I think I used the AdBlock to stop this intrusion without success and now everything is in this foreign language. I use Google Chrome and have tried to keep things translated to English, but have no idea if I've been hacked or what is going on. Can you please help me?
Thanks for your attention to this matter!
Sincerely, Dee "rusdee" Chastain

    Hi Dee,

    That's pretty unusual, all right! Are you seeing the language change on all web pages or just on Facebook?

    I can't get it to "reply" above your line?!?!?!?

    Yes, language change seems to be only on Facebook, but on every page I go
    to in FB. ie: games.
    All posts from friends, etc., are in the "Georgian" language and I have to
    hit the "translate key".

    Am afraid to post anything to friends for fear its been hacked and I do not
    know how to close the account either.

    Thanks for responding!

    Hi there, Rhana,

    I posted on the link you sent something to the effect of "posting here for
    a friend with
    hopes it fixes the problem". Not sure, but don't know how to re-access
    that site.

    The "Georgian" capture of my webpage in Facebook continues and I have to
    have each
    page or interpage translated back to English. Doesn't seem to affect
    anything other place I
    go on Google Chrome, but am afraid to do much because of this.

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Hi Rusdee,

    That's odd. I don't see any posts on our Facebook page with your name attached. I even looked for posts in Georgian, which was the point of my asking you to post something.

    But I've just done what I should have done from the start: looked on the web for an answer. :) I found it here: How can I change language setting back to English?.

    Please let me know if this doesn't help!
