Whenever I want to share something on Facebook using another app on iPad, the Facebook login page show in Chineese.
I can change this by choosing English at the bottom of this login page but after I login the following pages would be still in Chineese.

How can I change the default language?

Did you try to set your default language on Facebook on English (in account parameters) ? What is the language you use on the iPad and on Facebook right now ?

EDIT : after some tests it's seems that is more Facebook API related (because the problem is on several apps at a time). Either developers don't call correctly the Facebook login, or it's a bug.

Both my iPad's and Facebook account's language are set to English. – Hakan May 12 '12 at 18:54
From which app(s) did you try to share content ? The problem is on every app or just on or two for example ? – Ermiar May 12 '12 at 18:59
I tried on Ted, Pulse and Flipboard. – Hakan May 12 '12 at 19:08
Just try with TediSub and I have the Facebook dialog in Bahasa Indonesia. But I don't have any problem on Flipboard. Seems to me that the problem is on the app. Are you up to date with Flipboard ? – Ermiar May 12 '12 at 19:30
Every app is up to date. Tedisub is not a free app and I don't think I'll give it a try. – Hakan May 12 '12 at 20:33
