New Theme

If you browse over to my site, and not read this post through a rss reader or on Facebook, you’ll see that I’ve switched wordpress themes. I was just getting tired of the one I was using so I felt it was time for a change.

Problem is, I’m not so sure I really like it that much.

What do my readers think though? An improvement? A step back? No real difference?

Update Facebook with Twitter

Having published an earlier article on how to use your Facebook status to update Twitter I started to think about the possibility of doing the reverse: update your Facebook status via Twitter. I looked around Facebook and even did some Google searches but I was unable to come up with any way.

So I emailed the help desk at Facebook:

“I was wondering if there is anyway to update my Facebook status
from a site outside of Facebook, such as Twitter, Pownce or Jaiku.
I know its possible to update these sites using an RSS feed, but can
the reverse be done?”

The response I got back was:

“Unfortunately, the feature you are requesting is not currently
available. We will keep your suggestion in mind, however, as we
continue to improve the site. Let me know if you have any further
questions. ”

So thats the current situation, Facebook will allow outgoing RSS feeds but not incoming. It’ll be interesting to see when, if ever, Facebook will open up to other sites.

Last One for A While

Some of you might know this, and some of you might not, but I’m leaving tomorrow morning for a two month job planting trees in Northern Ontario. I’ll be gone until sometime until the beginning/middle of July. So that means there will be no more blog posts for quite some time. I might try to get something out on one of my days off, if I can find internet access somewhere.

I hope I’ll still have all my readers when I get back.

On a more interesting note. I love seeing what Google searches are bringing people to this site. The top hits of late have been:

RSS Facebook Status
Twitterfeed Facebook
Funny Facebook Status
Romantic Facebook Status
Funny Facebook Status Updates
LinkĀ  Twitter to Facebook

So apparently I’m a Twitter and Facebook guru… who knew

   
   
   

More RSS Feeds

I just finished mowing the lawn and now I’m relaxing with a cold beer. On Saturdays you can start drinking before noon. Its not wrong.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with Facebook mobile. Constantly updating my status has become like a low budget blog. Which gives me a great idea.

Look to the right….. see that new RSS feed? That’s my current Facebook status. Cool eh?
