Facebook apps

So this post is really an experiment. I’m hoping that when I post this, I will see a link show up on my Facebook feed. If that works, I may have successfully integrated Facebook with this blog.

The crazy thing is that, of course, there’s really no coding involved with this process. It’s something that someone else has coded and built beautiful, user-friendly wrappers around nifty APIs and I’m just taking advantage of others’ work. My friend Trina has had this integration in her blog for well over a year – and it took me all this time to figure it out.

But, hey, I figured it out… Or I’m hoping I will see that I figured it out when I actually post this.

So enough of empty typing. Let’s see if this works, shall we?

(moments later…)


Successful Facebook post.
Yes, I run Facebook inside an incognito window. That’s just the way I roll.

The problem is that I now need to get the app to post as my Swingleton page, rather than me. But I feel the biggest hurdle is crossed, the rest is just minutia.

What a good way to get the day rolling.
