I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

Thanks.

Hi

In Facebook, 1000's of people can like or frown or comment on certain columns.

In the Facebook API, am I able to easily message those people interested in the topic? are there ways, Apps to do this? Any costs?

This message page suggests billions? Really . . . .? . . .  here

Do I need to use Java or PHP coding in any way?

Thanks

Headed back over there is 3 hours so hoping for some comments by them.

Neighbor has over 30 videos uploaded and all average about 45 MB each. Does FB have any overall limits as far as a total?
Those 30+ are over 2GB so do they have some overall limit like x number of TB? I'm trying to get him to use Handbrake to compress them.

He says he has never had a problem uploading his large file videos which are only 3-4 minutes until lately. He clicks on add photo/video and he is given the chance to enter the name and description and the the blue button to post. That button is no longer blue.
I was over there yesterday and I do not know what I did but I moved around from home to settings to home and other places and stumbled onto the blue button and clicked it. The upload started and it was slow and so I left. It took 2 hours and he says it gave him two copies of the same video and he is unable to delete one of them so he deleted both of them so we are starting over.

Has FB made any changes to the upload procedure in the last 30-45 days since he has not uploaded a video since then?

Friend's home page is full of what all his FB friends post of their FB page. He only wants to see on his FB page what HE post of his FB page.
He does not want to see what they post of their FB page unless and until he visits their FB page.
What setting does he use for this?

As of this AM, I'm unable to upload photos to Facebook, either in the News Feed or via my own page.

When I click in the "posting box" at the top of the News Feed,  the colored background options that usually appear don't; when I click on the nearby photo/video "lozenge" my pictures folder opens, but chosen images don't upload when I click on them.

On my own page, when I click on photo/videos I don't even get my picture folder.

I can do a walkaround by uploading photos via the photo/video album option, but this is cumbersome.

Using Firefox 53.03 in both Mac OS X and Windows 10
Am unable to post pictures in Chrome 59.0.3071.86 in Mac OS X BUT can do so in the same version of Windows 10.

Wha?

I suspect that this is an FB issue about which I can do nothing, but I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks.

I have multiple pages but none of my credentials are for my business page.  I have tried my various logins and they all go to the personal page.

I can get to the business page via logging into the personal page but my socialpilot s/w says I have to have the credentials for business page for it to post content to my business fb page.

How can I find out the credentials for my business page?

hi
i have went through both api's and it seem like one can access only ones own posts or tweets? so if i want to show in an app my home page facebook posts ( therefore, things that my friends and follower posted ), or my home page twitter posts ( not my own, but those i follow) can't i do it?

am i right? or wrong? even if the user authenticate himself?

Andrew. I am a Nigerian. The situation you highlighted is truly deep. The average street boys over here (14yrs and above)  especially in my area search for money through these means. They even have clicks to receive scamming training.

In my experience, I would advise guys over there not to be greedy (especially when they receive juicy invitations to make ridiculously huge  money you didn't earn). I truly wish people would wise up and not fall for such scams. Because the success of some scammers deceives the younger ones into choosing to become scammers. (I already have over 7 on my street alone.

Andrew. I am a Nigerian. The situation you highlighted is truly deep.
Hi Timothy, whilst it's true that a lot of the scams I'm talking about originate from Nigeria, hence the "419" reference, which I understand was derived from the Nigerian Criminal Code Act-Part VI and are prolific there, it's not only Nigerians that partake in this sort of criminal practice.

Indeed, many scams are conducted from countries from all over the world.. USA, Great Britain, Australia, pretty much anywhere. It's not just 419 scams either - scammers have turned to every imaginable way to try and trick people out of their hard earned cash.

You have your Love Scams, where scammers target the lonely. Tech Scams (found to be prolific in Indian regions) where they try and pretend to be Microsoft Technicians. Just about every subject matter from every country imaginable!

The Race of a scammer doesn't come into it for me - just because someone may be Nigerian or Indian or whatever, it doesn't mean they're dishonest. Thieves come from all walks of life.
In my experience, I would advise guys over there not to be greedy (especially when they receive juicy invitations to make ridiculously huge  money you didn't earn). I truly wish people would wise up and not fall for such scams.
You make an excellent point there Timothy.  Not all victims are blameless and there is undoubtably greed involved on some of those that fall prey to many of these schemes. Each case should therefore be viewed on its own individual merits. It is also a reason why many victims prefer to suffer in silence rather than report their losses to the authorities.

Thank you for your contribution to this topic. Always great to hear and explore other points of view.

We have a contractor that manages some of our facebook advertising accounts.  They're afraid to grant us access to those things because they think it will give us access to see their facebook posts/etc.

Now I know we can make a stink over it, but I'm trying to avoid that since we have a good relationship with this person.  Isn't a facebook advertising account/management over it just like other tools, where admin rights can be assigned to other people by the current admin?  Can that person's privacy be respected and yet still grant us access?

Hi all,

Sorry I'm sure this question has been asked a billion times, but googling for a few days has given me no help on how to do this.

I have followed the steps from the official facebook API via javascript and loading it asynchronously and that works well in website emulator but doesn't work when i test it on an android or ios device.

All help i can find online is always to include a facebook plugin to get it to work, and all of these appear to be using angular or some other bloatware which is not viable inside my pure html/javascript program. I am new to visual studio and cordova so a lot of the things that may make sense to you is news to me :)

My question is if anyone can point me in the right direction on how to have one library for basic javascript (or jquery is probably fine) where I can connect to the facebook API and use their functions such as logging in, posting etc. I would prefer some example on usage as well since I don't understand most of what is happening with plugins or cordova as such. If it's possible to use basic javascript API as stated on facebook and download/use it non asynchronously that would be best for me (assume that asynch is the issue why it's not working on android).

Thanks for your time,
Primoz

I plant to start a political podcast in the near future, but want to plan ahead so it can be successful.

I have lots of questions...

- What is the ideal length? 1 hour per week? Can it vary in length based on length of the content?

- What are some good ways to promote my podcast?

- Are there any income earning opportunities from a podcast with a lot of listeners?

- What are the listenership for some of the more successful podcasts?

- What kinds of "do's" and "don'ts" are there?

I could plan to apply some budget to promotion. If Facebook the best?

Thanks.

The company I work for wants to upload an image to facebook and hyperlink it to a website. Unfortunately, I can't just post the website URL on facebook and use one of the custom photos. It needs to be a specific image that is not located on the website.

Am an Admin for a very large Facebook community (+400 k members).  
In the last 24 hours have seen 858 posts, with no information and I can not remove them.  That is ghost posts.  Issue has been reported to FB with no reply.  We average about 500 posts per day but I have never seen this issue before.  No abnormal volume of spam issues have occurred, we monitor the group very closely 24/7.
Attached is a screen shot.  It does not provide alot of detail.

Thanks alot
