Facebook has announced that international advertisers will be able to purchase their ads in specific local currencies.

More than half of Facebook’s users are located outside the US, with a significant portion of the social networking giants advertising dollar being drawn from non-US locales.

Over the coming weeks, Facebook will launch the local currency feature which will enable advertisers to purchase space in 14 different currencies.
