    Hey, friends. First, you need to install Zawgyi-One font for your problem. If you haven't had that font yet, download from this link . Then , install it and restart your windows. When the windows turns on again, open your Chrome Browser. In the browser , ?follow these steps. setting >> options . A new tab will open and there click on "Under the hood" and click on Customize font. Change all types of fonts to "Zawgyi-One" and "Unicode (UTF-16)" for "Encoding". Then click on Save changes or Apply/ Ok . Restart the browser. You will be Ok not only to read but also to write Burmese fonts on any social media through Chrome Browser.

    Ko Htet Aung, I have the same problem like you. Facebook myanmar font(zawgyi) is ok on firefox browser but not on Chrome in Windows 8 and also I can't change icon fonts to (zawgyi) like previous Windows. So far now, I've found out this fonts problem only and everything else is really great. I love window 8.

    I know what you mean Htet. I'm having the same problem. The burmese font is properly installed and it is working on other burmese web pages except facebook on Windows 8. Everything is nice and dandy in on Windows 7.

    Win 8 + Burmese font + Chrome browser + Facebook = not rendering burmese font at all

    Win 8 + Burmese font + IE 10 browser + Facebook = rendering correctly

    I think it could be chrome compatibility in Win 8.

      Hi SDHO,
      Win 8 + Burmese font + IE 10 + fb or gmail = NOT rendering correctly for me. Everywhere else, such as BBC, VOA, DVB, Irrawaddy, Blogs, etc are fine.

      Any advise is highly appreciated.

    I can't read what you're typing, even though I can read Japanese,Korean, Thai, and Chinese just fine.
    I usually copy and paste non Latin texts from a word processor (that can see the words) to the status box.

    You can read it well on your computer. But not in my Computer.
    I think it need special language set up in the computer used. And maybe it is the reason why Facebook not adding the compatibility for it.

    If you do not have the font installed go to -->
    and download the font.

    Right click on the font once downloaded (and unzipped) and click install.

    Restart your web browser and the font should now be on facebook.
