So far my report is the following:
- I've tried twitterfeed.com, but it appeared too buggy and non-perfect for me. Actually it didn't work. I've tried to set-up a feed, then when I tried to connect to Facebook with my account, it said "Opps, it appears that your Facebook session has expired."
. I've tried to re-open my browser, then it some how worked, but the feed didn't publish anything on Facebook's wall. In result, now I have two the same feeds set up on this website, and I don't know how to remove them. Now it says "Marked this service as inactive due to authorisation failure, edit your feed service settings and activate again"
. I didn't went further and simple left it as is. It appears simply impossible. "Bad Gateway" is also quite a regular error on this site. I don't like it. They say they are "twittering" couple of millions of accounts, but I suspect, they are all just dead accounts like mine, and only minor part of them produces something useful.
- RSS Graffiti is more suitable, and I've got luck with it. I've set up RSS feed, didn't change their default settings, and it appeared confusing at the beginning, that I didn't find anything on my wall immediately. You should wait for about a day, until the only new feeds
made since the moment when you set up RSS Graffiti, will appear on the wall. But at least they are appearing OK - despite I wouldn't call it an "in-time" technology. What sense to read about what happened yesterday? It's not new anymore.
Still, this all doesn't make a big sense for me at the moment.
Accordingly to Facebook apps page
, tabs on user profile pages will no longer be supported after the end of the year
. I didn't understand this in whole, but it appears "Wall" is also a tab, and may be in the future it will have another meaning.
Also they are in the process of deprecating FBML
i.e. Facebook Markup Language.
There appear to be so many changes in Facebook 3rd party developing strategy, that I think it is not worth to share more related time to it right now. Their "technology" is too raw at the moment. What sense to work on something, if it stops to work in a year or even less.
The funny note in Wikipedia
accordingly such developers, state that "It grew to more than 800,000 developers around the world building applications for Facebook Platform."
Honestly I don't understand from where they've got such a lot of developers, if they even don't have a human documentation explaining what needs to be done for what. I can't believe that, and the Wikipedia doesn't have source of information for this data, btw.
I suppose, that's why it all sucks at the moment.
