Hi everybody.
It looks I'm not able to understand how to do something I thought it be quick and easy. When I click on a 'share with Facebook' icon in a web page, sometimes I would like to share that content not in my main profile but in one of my pages. But clicking the share icon doesn't allow me to set the page where post the link I'm sharing: there's something I can do on my Facebook settings to get this feature available? Or does a workaround exist to get this result?

Thank you so much for your help.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           Apparently, my Facebook account has been compromised or hacked because several of my friends have informed me of receiving friend request.  At this point, what should I do next to help protect my Facebook account from further hacking?  

            Thank you

The right side arrow leads to many of them. I clicked on "hide" yesterday and it is back today. How to stop that one specific notification?
Which is not a notification but some way that FB tries to create friends for people = nuisance.

Hi,

I'm trying to add someone as a Facebook friend, but on this person's profile, the ADD FRIEND button is missing.
Add Friend Missing
There is also an option that says: "If you know ______, send her a message."  This person is not currently a FB friend. (I know of her b/c she "liked" a post in a group to which we both belong.

Any idea why ADD FRIEND would be missing? Is that an option a user can disable?

Thanks,
Steve

I subscribe to Spotify Premium service for about $10.00 a month. I am unable to logon. It does not like my email in spite of them sending me several emails every month. They elude to the possibility that I might be using my  Facebook logon. What I wish to accomplish is to give Spotify a dedicated new email ONLY for them. I cannot find any way of contacting them because their available "fill in the forms" are not appropriate for what I wish to do. It seems impossible to find ANY phone number for this company. I cannot even locate a regular email for them. I am willing to provide ANY verification that they might require if I only could find a method to convey this to them. In my not so humble opinion they have taken customer service by forms TOO far. Does any Expert have an email for them?  If they are in any way using my facebook login I wish to discontinue that and use only a new email between Spotify and myself. I have spent several hours on trying to figure this out which is crazy especially in view that I am a paying customer. Any suggestions would be welcome for sure.

I have one Facebook account and would like to talk with someone via chat who knows about how to properly configure Facebook, so that it can be used for professional, personal, as well as to sell products.

I currently have this page https://www.facebook.com/ted.penner.7 that is supposed to be my professional Facebook presence and people, even "friends" complain that they can't see anything at all.

1. I would like to be able to have a professional view as the default available at that URL to all the public.

2. I would also like to promote a video designed to sell a product from my website to a Facebook audience that cannot see any of my personal contacts such as so-called "friends" or "acquaintances".

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Dear Guys, we are having this issue: After moved to a new seat, an user's PC could not access only some domestic websites, she still could access to foreign sites, such as yahoo, facebook, gmail... Anyone can suggest a solution, please?

I tested and these are some results:
- Plug in a laptop in that PC's place, it CAN access Internet normally
- Bring that PC to other places, it CAN access Internet normally
- We checked in the Router and Switches but there is no sticky command matched with PC's MAC address
- There is no ACL involved in permit/deny traffic
- 2 users stayed here before but they COULD access Internet normally
- We scanned virus, reinstall PC but could not help

Here I come again with this question on how to achieve dynamic content loading when user scroll to the bottom of the page. Currently, my code is loading all the content from the db at once using ajax, but I don't want to load everything at once. I want it to load just like twitter or facebook. Below is my code and what I've been trying to do.

HTML
<html>
<head>
<script>
function yHandler() {
    var wrap = document.getElementById('homeFeed');
    var contentHeight = wrap.offsetHeight;
    var yOffset = window.pageYOffset;
    var y = yOffset + window.innerHeight;
    if (y >= contentHeight) {
        // Ajax call to get more dynamic data goes here, how do I integrate the ajax call here? 
    }
}
window.onscroll = yHandler;

function feed() {
    var xhttp;
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
        // code for modern browsers
        xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
    } else {
        // code for IE6, IE5
        xhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    }
    xhttp.onreadystatechange = function(response) {
        if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200) {
            document.getElementById("homeFeed").innerHTML = this.response;
        }
    };
    xhttp.open("GET", "functions/feedUpdate_New.php", true);
    xhttp.send(null);
}
feed();
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="homeFeed"></div>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window



PHP - feedUpdate_New.php

<?php
include_once(db_connect.php);
$sql = "SELECT message, audio, firstname, lastname FROM once WHERE username='myname'";
$query = mysqli_query($db_connect, $sql); 
    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($query, MYSQLI_ASSOC)) {
                    $message = $row['message'];
                    $audio = $row['audio'];
                    $firstname = $row['firstname'];
                    $lastname = $row['lastname'];

echo '<div id="parentContainer">';
      echo $message.'<br />';
      echo $firstname.''.$lastname;
echo '</div>';
}
?>

Open in new window


I have more than 1000 lines returned from my database query back to the ajax call. But I want to use the
function yHandler()

Open in new window

to achieve the dynamic loading, but I'm not just getting how to integrate the ajax call inside my
function feed()

Open in new window

into the yHandler to get the dynamic loading working.
Do I need to add LIMIT into my sql statement? Or is there any other way to get this done?

Is there a piece of code I can put in a href which when you click the link shares the page in facebook or twitter?

I know you can use:

<a href="http://twitter.com/share?url=<URL>&text=<TEXT>via=<USERNAME>"><img src="tw-circle.png" border="0" height="36" width="36"></a>

But I want it to know the page it is on as it is for a page template.

Thanks,

I have a youtube video with a pitch for a subscription service.

I plan to get some assistance in promoting the service and want to find a way to tie the link being passed around by each individual salesperson, back to that individual so that I know what commission to pay them if those viewers become customers.

Assistance in figuring out how to do this is greatly appreciated.

Hello Experts,

Can someone please let me know if its possible to only have certain people view your past experience details in LinkedIn?

I know I can change my privacy settings to not publicly show my 'Past Experience' details as shown in the attached image. However, is possible to also 'not' show 'Past Experience' details to only certain LinkedIn members.


Thanks

Carlton

P.S. I added 'Facebook' as the approved topic because LinkedIn is still in proposal state

I knew Facebook tracked you but this is freaky!  I browsed some new mattresses on my iPad. It does not have the Facebook app on and I have only logged into Facebook once on it.

A few hours later logged into Facebook on my iPhone through the browser and not the app. Got bombarded with adverts for the very same mattresses that I had browsed a few hours earlier on my iPad!

My question is, how?  Not cookies as they are different devices? How did they associate my browsing on my iPad to looking at Facebook on my iPhone and showing me targeted ads!?

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.
