Facebook's newest scheme to help players discover new games--and for "users" to discover new boring apps--has gone global to seven additional countries around the world. The Facebook App Center launched last month solely in the U.S., but according to the Facebook developer blog, that only accounts for about 20 percent of the overall Facebook user base. And now, to take over the world!

Well, at least Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom to start. Facebook's Drew Hoskins writes "Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey" are up next in the coming weeks. Of course, this goes for both Facebook on the web and on mobile devices.

What's interesting about this global push is that, depending upon where the user (or player) is based, the App Center will attempt to automatically display the app (or game) in the viewer's native language. What most likely hasn't changed is how the App Center works, which you can learn all about right here ... with our opinions, naturally.
