Some of the folders that we stored our Expressions images in had spaces like â€śUser Submittedâ€ť
Websites, as a standard replace the space with %20 so the computer serving the page can understand it.
Facebook made a change to how they show images on your profile and this change did not correctly handle this %20 / space issue which resulted in images not being able to be displayed.
We received emails from people about their Expressions not showing up correctly but every time we would test it we could not reproduce the problem because we were applying images that were stored in folders without a space like â€śMusicâ€ť for instance.
Last weekend, my friends and I were hanging out at my house. A couple of hours later, I discovered that Maria, who was using my mac earlier, forgot to log out of her facebook account. Being the inquisitive person that I am and having no background regarding the features of the said social networking site I decided to explore it using what was conveniently left open for me. Ergo, I used her account. Besides, it was a good venue to get gossip from whatever her online buddies may have posted. I thought to myself, maybe they have been talking about something juicy. AND the juicier the conversation, the better it is for me. Now before you start thinking that I am so outmoded for not knowing the features of facebook, I would like to clarify things. I have always been a fan of myspace and as a fan, I tend to be LOYAL. Anyhow, going back to the topic, I clicked around the site and saw that apparently, Maria was friends with the hottest guy in our school. Then I saw a POKE ME underneath his photo. This was a sure shot sign of invitation for me, SO I POKED HIM, logged off and left a message on Mariaâ€™s phone to tell her what I did.
The next day, Maria screamed with delight while plopping down beside me at the cafeteria. She said that Josh (thatâ€™s the name of our campus hunk) poked her back in facebook. I rolled my eyes and asked her what was so great about that. It wasnâ€™t as if he asked her out on a date. She said, in a matter of fact voice that Josh was in fact flirting with her when he poked her back. So I was like â€śHUH?â€ť I might have given Maria a stupid look because she immediately launched into a lengthy explanation of what poking in facebook means.
One of the primary things you can use Facebook for is keeping up with what your friends are doing. The best way to accomplish this is by looking at their Facebook Status updates.
Jeff, Mary, and Joe are all friends on Facebook, living in different countries, in different time zones. In order for them to stay updated with each other they would have to either go to each others Facebook Profiles or monitor their homepage feed constantly. If they each have 200+ Facebook Friends (which is the norm) and they don’t login each day this can become a pain, quickly.
This is no longer a problem, as of last week Facebook has added the ability to view your friends updates based on the Friend Lists you setup. This will save Jeff, Mary, Joe and YOU a lot of time and allow you to stay even more connected with your friends.
Are you ready to learn this new way to QUICKLY and EASILY stay up to date with what your Facebook Friends are doing?
I have a confession to make. I AM ADDICTED TO FACEBOOK. But that is not something I am ashamed of. Come to think of it, to be not addicted to facebook is a crime these days, considering its immense popularity as evidenced by its millions of users. And imagine my excitement when an online version of Scrabble, Scrabulous, was made available to us Facebook users (yes, thatâ€™s another confessionâ€”Iâ€™m addicted to Scrabble)! Scrabulous is an online word game based on the board game Scrabble. Scrabulous was developed by two brothers from India and is most popular for its facebook application.

It was not long before I got the scrabulous add-on, and became glued to it. Yes, Iâ€™m guilty of being one of the 600, 000 daily users of Scrabulous in face book.
Imagine my dismay and I presume, the dismay of the other 599,999 users when the makers of Scrabble (Mattel and Hasbro) asked Facebook to remove the Scrabulous game from its website on grounds of infringement.
Though this move by Mattel and Hasbro caused uproar from Facebook users, a lot of Scrabble fans had a sigh of relief.
So, whatâ€™s the real scoreâ€“ Has Scrabulous placed Scrabble at an advantage or at a disadvantage?
