FB: Profile Boxes Going Away ... and now? (5 posts)

    Hejhej

    Does anyone has an idea, in which way WPBook can display the current blog posts on a FB Fanpage, when these boxes are not working anymore?

    Searching through the bulletin board to find the link to the blog entry may be a bit uncomfy.

    WPBook puts blog posts on the FB Fanpage 2 ways:

    First, blog posts get published to the wall (a personal wall or a FB Page wall) when they are published in WordPress - an excerpt with a link to the full post is published.

    Second, WPBook enables a profile tab, which can be added to the FB fan page and contains all the blog's posts.

    Yes, I know (and everything is running how it should).

    But if you have checked Facebook's announcement, this tap will vanish -> Facebook announcement.

    .. and I was wondering if they said anything about a different way to show these blog posts in such a condensed form.

    :) well probably, they don't know it themselves.

    Not sure what you mean when you say "this tab will vanish."

    The *boxes* on people's profiles will go away, as will the "boxes" tab - but the other, application specific tabs (like the one created by WPBook) will still exist, as will the wall.

    At least that's how I've understood their roadmap announcements.

    Since I use the German Facebook, I can't give a valid translation of their small comment in that box with the Recent Posts.
    ("Facebook wird Profilfelder bald entfernen.")

    But the German text gives the impression, especially since they display it directly in that small box on the fan page, that this box will vanish.

    I hope, that my understanding about this "Profilfeld" is wrong and you'll be correct :).
