Some Facebook features in Elftown pseudo HTML:



Linking to a Facebook profile: [@fb577212311] where 577212311 is the profile ID. You can see it in the address field in your browser (after "id="). A profile with a username can be linked to like [@fb:heddahenrik]

Linking to a Facebook Event: [@fe10264536332] where 10264536332 is the event ID. You can see it in the address field in your browser (after "eid=").

Linking to a Facebook Group: [@fg2388633706] where 2388633706 is the group ID. You can see it in the address field in your browser (after "gid=").

If you want you can of course just write normal URLs like www.facebook.com/heddahenrik too. Note: A trick to get the right URL to a Facebook page is to press reload before you copy the address! Otherwise you'll get a lot of crap in the address. Generally you can remove some stuff from the URL too. Like ?ref=home

2008-03-02 [Nocternity S.]: lol...

2008-03-03 [iippo]: Whoaness! Facebook linkage! :O That is cool. Nice one, Hedda! :D

2008-03-03 [Hedda]: Yes, but it looks ugly though. But it's practical that it looks like it's coded. For a number of reasons I don't want to make it more complicated by adding names and such. It's just a way to make those longish Facebook URLs shorter.

2008-03-04 [Nocternity S.]: ha! thats awsome... :)

2008-03-05 [xido]: Also helpful might be to make such a link which would go to the 'About' info pages for Applications in case we have Elftowner developers out there who would like to put in on projects, such as a few ideas I have had in mind for a while.

ie, http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=24743567664 (Facebook Application - 'thexsnet')

[DSA] will be helping me make the xsnet application and xidoraven studios company website, and the applications will both be usable through the fb utility for artists.

2008-04-03 [Paul Doyle]: I like what I've seen on Facebook so far, and I've spent too much free time there the last few days, finding people I haven't seen in years, ET'ers of course, and even my brother and sister-in-law. I just wish Facebook wasn't so restrictive regarding uploading artwork in place of photos.

2008-04-03 [iippo]: I just wish Facebook wasn't so restrictive regarding uploading artwork in place of photos.

? How is it restrictive? o.O I've never thought of doing that so never tried or even looked into... But I've seen people upload drawings and stuff... I think. o.O

2008-04-03 [Grandamelf]: I signed up but I used my other email to get there so the links would work! So I don't get ther too often!

2008-04-04 [Paul Doyle]: I'm sure art CAN be uploaded to Facebook . . . but there seems to be lots of restrictions. On the other hand, I'm brand-new there and still know little about Facebook, so I could be way off-base here.

2008-07-20 [Hedda]: I would love something like that too. Daily art or random Elftown art would be nice. I have a LOL-cats application which does exactly what I want an Elftown art application to do. It takes a random image and you can change it until you're satisfied.

But I have no idea how to program Facebook apps. I tried to read about it, but only found something about that I need a permit or something (might be wrong).

2008-07-24 [Hedda]: MySpace is very good at giving people what they want. Unfortunately, most people can't stand that others get what they want (music playing, hideous colours and I don't know what).

2008-07-24 [Hedda]: One thing that's good with Facebook is the events. That and the photos are the only things I think it's useful for.

Guess what feature I'm working on designing now. <img:stuff/BR-GIF.gif>

2008-07-29 [Skydancer]: Well, the very first thing I did was disable each and every application and only allowed two to remain active. Then went through it all very carefully and blocked pretty much everything. grins. I really really hate sites that take it on themselves to decide what you do or do not want to be a part of.

2008-10-18 [Hedda]: I've written http://www.elftown.com/ in my Facebook mood now. Should at least get some people interested, I hope.

Spamming Facebook with Elftown is of course a good thing! <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-10-18 [Skydancer]: grins.. :)of course it is.

2008-11-03 [Hedda]: Seems like viruses are being sent on Facebook now. If you click on some links, you're asked to install a codex to view the video. If you do, you'll see the video, but what you don't know is that it's send to all your friends too and it installs naughty stuff on your computer.

Elftown isn't immune to this kind of attack either as you can send links here too, but the viruses aren't adjusted to log into Elftown and sent it further here in your name.

If you install a codex to view a video, then be damn sure to do it from the proper place and not from hermans.nicecodexes.org!

2010-08-22 [Hedda]: What app?

2010-08-23 [Hedda]: That app isn't announced nor ready for use.

2011-02-26 [Akayume]: ...Are you talking to yourself [Hedda]? .___."

2011-02-27 [Hedda]: Some people like to delete their comments.

2011-02-28 [Akayume]: Ahhhhh, I see. That makes more sense. Only slightly. (; Kidding.
