HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

We got a Facebook friend request. We want to know the setting so we can see who they are = the most recent friend request. All we see are the many who have requested and not in chronological order. Thanks.

I am looking to build a Local audience centered around health and have started the group pictured below on Facebook.

When I went to share the group with a friend that is new to social media, and not on Facebook, and to my surprise I could not.

Since I am also new to using social media myself really, I am a little lost here.

This inability to share with a non-Facebook audience might render Facebook a poor option for this.

Is there any way to share it?  If not, what might be a better social media choice?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hello,
I'm experiencing a few problems with the Facebook Pixel settings/advertising for my new website Sportykit.com
I have attached a document with a full description of the problem as well as many screenshots of various relevant screens.
Please can you take a look and advise me on how overcome the confusion about pixel settings, as whenever I try to create a new advert in ads manager it always tries to link 2 my old Facebook page i'm not the new one?

The way the problem presents itself is that when I try and create a new Facebook ads campaign, The pixel always points to my original website pixel (from YogaOmatic.com - A site that no longer exists) and not the new pixel that was created via pixel caffeine (the WordPress plugin) as you can see on the screenshots in the document that I attached.

Ok, so I start an ad campaign on Facebook. But several of my fellow employees, some of whom enter orders many times a day, have liked my Facebook page, and an ad may appear on their timeline. Now I don't know if just seeing the ad can skew the results, but I want the people in my office not to be counted when the results come in. There's no IP filter like there is on Google, what can I do? Thanks.

A friend sent me a hoax warning not to accept Facebook friend requests from Andrea Wilson. That it could cause trouble:

"Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept friendship request from Andrea Wilson . She is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks."


However, two other friends told me it was a hoax and I found two links that SEEM to indicate they're correct:

(Search on "Andrea")

Based on the below can I rest assured the original msg I received is a hoax? Thanks.

Attach pictures to a Facebook messenger message from an online folder or album.

I would like to be able to attach pictures to a Facebook message from an online folder or album, and not just from the hodgepodge of pictures that have somehow made it into the root of the local gallery on my phone.

The two online services that I am currently considering using are from Microsoft and from Google, but neither of those folders or albums seems to be accessible from my Android Galaxy Note 8 phone.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the impact of verifying a domain in Facebook through business manager. I am conscious of other negative effects of verifying my domain such as impacting users who have registered a facebook account under the same domain. I need to ensure there is no impact for them, thanks,

Despite many hours of searching, I can't seem to find a cause for this behaviour and it's driving me nuts, so I'm hoping some other experts can weigh in with a solution.

When posting on Facebook, I expect and usually get the following comment box:

FB Comment Box with Camera Icon
Then for no apparent reason that I've been able to determine, the comment box turns into the following:

FB Comment Box with No Camera Icon
What the hell? It doesn't seem to be browser-specific as I've noted it happens in Google Chrome, Brave, Avast Secure Browser, Internet Explorer, and FireFox. (Yeah I know, but I'm testing a lot of browsers for a future article) :)

There seems to be no particular pattern to "when" it happens - it just seems to happen at random times for no particular reason.

Refreshing the browser doesn't help. Closing the browser completely and opening it again often resolves the problem.  

But even when it occurs and I don't close the browser, I can open a new tab, go to another facebook page (say my own Facebook page) and the camera icon is there and can be used. (?!)

I've disabled all extensions and still had it occur.

The camera icon is needed to be able to attach a photo into a comment that is saved on the hard drive.

I dislike being beaten, but I'm at a loss here. Help! :)

Has anyone found the cause of this and how to stop it happening?

Cheers.

I create an announcement in Meetup.
I use the Facebook button in Meetup to forward the information to Facebook.
The image that is displayed on Meetup is not displayed on Facebook.
I've never had this problem before.

I just tried to transfer the information from Meetup to Facebook; now It appears that I can't use this service at all!
What am I missing!

When freelancing you must learn to promote your Java skills to companies. How do you solve targeting? Targeting means you do not send your promotion to every staff in the company, but only to decision makers.

Decision makers can be team leaders, project managers, etc. Decision makers NEED someone with your skills.

Some digital marketing tools: Google AdWords, Google AdSense, Facebook Ads. Targeting must be as effective as possible. Sending promotions to the wrong people is extremely expensive. Usually, the audience for a marketing campaign is too broad. Here, one idea is to narrow them down by their job function.

We are using Hubspot to handle demo meeting requests and we are going to be running ads to a page where the call to action is to book a live demo. We want to run these ads in Facebook as conversion ads. The problem with this lies in the fact that the Hubspot meeting confirmation is an asynchronous message on the page. It doesn't and cannot load a thank you page. If it did, tracking conversions would be super easy.

So, I found a discussion thread in the hubspot support community where others are begging for a solution and one person posted a script that we can add to Google tag manager that listens for something programatic that we can use to tell Facebook that a conversion happened.

Here is that post: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Allow-for-conversion-tracking-with-Meetings-in-HubSpot/idc-p/256571#M30503

Here is the code that Facebook says we need to fire to tell it a conversion happened:
<script>
  fbq('track', 'Schedule');
</script>

All I'm looking for is some guidance on setting up this script. I've tried and cannot seem to get it to work.

I was asked to verify login after #FacebookDown two days ago.

When I submit this error comes up - "It looks like you’re using this feature in a way it wasn’t meant to be used. Please slow down, or you could be blocked from using it."Facebook Error Code
I have submitted forms letting them know about login errors.
I have also attempted to submit form to verify my account w/ my ID but it's showing this error: Error 2
Which also indicates to me that I have not violate any TOS - I am very aware of the rules and do not spam or appear to spam.

I went to bed with a working profile and woke up to this, so I'm assuming this is a result of the outage.  

I can not log into to business manager or my profile. My profile appears blocked, according to my friends.
I have tried several devices.

It appears to me that this is a widespread issue, but I'm wondering if anyone had any insight/solution/way to contact FB.

Thanks!

Hello,
I want to make a windows form application that will only show the number of friend we have in a specific Facebook account, so no posting, viewing or whatever. Just a big counter number on a screen.

I tried the following code:
using Facebook;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace FacebookCounter
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            var fb = new Facebook.FacebookClient();

            dynamic tokenInfo =
              fb.Get(
                String.Format(
                  "/oauth/access_token?client_id={0}&client_secret={1}&grant_type=client_credentials",
                  "XXXXXXXXXXXXX",
                  "XXXXXXXXXXXXX"));

            var appAccessToken = (string)tokenInfo.access_token;

            //   FacebookClient client = new FacebookClient(accToken());
            fb.AccessToken = appAccessToken;
            dynamic friendListData = fb.Get("/me/friends");
            var result = (from i in (IEnumerable<dynamic>)friendListData.data
                          select new
                          {
                              i.name,
                              i.id

Hello,

I have a personal Facebook page.

I want to create a pages for my businesses.

Do I create my business page under my personal account? If no, then what are the steps to follow? I have found different advices online and I don't know which one to follow.

After doing that, is it advisable that I link Instagram to my Facebook business page? I saw an option on FB that does that. Do I use it? Or shall I keep each page separate?

Thanks,

I have very little understanding of what I am doing inside of my facebook business page and of course, there is no FB support help desk. People are messaging me inside my business page but I am not getting alerts. It appears I have all alerts turned on but I do not see any alerts via email or sms.

I have a personal messenger app on my iphone. Is there a way to have a business version installed?

How do you turn on SMS alerts when people message me on my business page?

thank you

i am at my wits end with a computer problem on facebook and i dont know who to ask. i hope someone here can help me or at least tell me who to ask for help. fb and reddit were not helpful at all.

i have had this problem for almost a year but now its really an issue and i HOPE HOPE HOPE someone here has some idea for me to solve it.

when i try and change the 'seen as active' settings on fb desktop chat sidebar i click on the gear icon and i get the little pop up with the options but when i make a choice it wont work. i always get the little box pop up on my screen with the 3 different options to select from ie turn off active status for all, some, exceptions--- but no matter what combination, --ie addition or subtraction of names or choice of settings ,that i try ---when i click "okay" nothing happens the box just sits there but when i click cancel it will close again.

i've tried on 3 different browsers chrome safari and opera (i am macbook pro running mojave) i cleared my cache, cookies, content settings, autofill content, i tried command enter kind of stuff option enter just anything i could think of but nothing helps at all. i did go on the messenger app to see if i could toggle the options there but those specific set of options do not exist on the app just on desk top.

i have tried so many things and nothing works and i am stuck with a really unfortunate set up as far as who can/cant see me active.

i really really really want and need to change my settings …

Dear all,

Some students use face facebook ID to abuse others.  Is there a way to find that person>
I am a director of IT, who has access to all traffic coming in and going out through the campus.  My question is,  can I find the identity of an individual using face Facebook account at the university through the IP address of the device.  

I can see the facebook links accessed by each individual user, but I don't know how to catch someone using fake Facebook ID through our local IP address.
