    Mari, you just saved me a whole heck of a lot of work by putting this all in one place. Thank you!

  • Jason Padvorac

    Great post, Mari! I just wanted to confirm that the Static HTML app will *never* add branding to your page. We really liked how Static FBML was no-frills-no-attempted-up-sell white-label, and wanted to duplicate that.

    Also, as we speak I’m migrating the app to a cloud-based hosting system. Our traffic has spiked since you mentioned us, and we want to make sure that the experience stays fast and smooth for people. :)

    I’m sure a lot of people are going to be glad you put this together, Mari. Thanks for including Social Identities in your list of designers, developers.

    Mari, great resources you put together here! I also put together a tutorial on the new Facebook iFrames that comes with a fully customizable design that is totally free. I thought you or your readers might be interested.

    I heard news facebook no more to support new FBML applications to be created. New canvas applications and Page tabs will have to be based on IFrames and our JavaScript SDK.

    Hi Mari, can you please add Pagemodo.com to your list of iframe apps

  • Jim

    Mari You are a very generous and caring person..it comes thru so very well and following your example I sincerely believe will put me on the path to success.
    But with that said there are quite a few seemingly successful “Gurus” that come across as “used car salesmen”…
    I guess i need to do what allows me to sleep well at nite
    Your approach is the best..Thanks for the inspiration.

    Quick heads up – while it would indeed be brilliant to discover what’s trending on Facebook, the site (itstrending.com) which that article directs us to, appears to be no more :(

  • Joyce Mclagan

    I don’t want to blog or read all the things other people have to say. What I want to know is how to get Facebook to work on my Blackberry! I was given a temporary code; entered it and then entered my new password twice double checking that they were spelled the same and it still wouldn’t accept it. All I want is to be use my Facebook on my phone and apparently it’s not possible.

    I wish you could explain what is going wrong because it is very frustrating.
