Facebook Integration Delayed.

April 24, 2007

I have been working on integrating IMLocation with facebook. Unfortunately, the current facebook API utterly lacks a way to set the status of a user. Most everything is read-only.

There are two options:
1) Wait for facebook to fix the API. Who knows how long this will take.
2) Somehow simulate a user in a webrowser manually updating their status message. This is a lot of work.

Unfortunately, at this point in time, nether option looks like it will result in a quick fix.
