On your iPhone, try Settings, General, Reset and reset locations.   Shut all the way off and restart after this. Does that help?

If not, backup with iTunes, do a full reset and recover the apps and data from iTunes.

My 4S is running 8.1.2.

For Facebook, go to this link:

http://www.facebook.com/editaccount.php?language

and change the language to English, after about 2 seconds the page will reload automatically and the default language from now on will be English.
