On Facebook I decided to show off with the languages I know.
Now, when I click on my "Profile" I can see "Knows French, English, German and 4 others" just under my name.

Problem: My friends can NOT see it. (the point of Facebook is to be seen, right?)

In Privacy Settings, I use "Customize": everything is "Friends only" (except my email address which is "Only me"), which is not very restrictive, so I guess it is not a privacy settings problem.

Any idea what I have to do to make the languages visible?

They could still be using the old Facebook UI. which is upgradable http://www.facebook.com/about/profile/.

You also need to make sure

See your likes, activities and other connections

is set to the right privacy level.

You can check the various levels of visibility of your profile.

I can't find the "See your likes, activities and other connections" setting in "Choose Your Privacy Settings > Customize settings". Is it in another place I didn't think about? My friend is using the new profile, and still can only see where I live, but not the languages. –  nic Dec 18 '10 at 2:43
    
@Nicolas It is in Choose Your Privacy Settings > Connecting on Facebook –  phwd Dec 18 '10 at 13:54

Unlike posts/comments/messages, changes to settings on your Facebook profile sometimes take several hours before they are seen by everyone. Check again the next day.
