How can I set up automatic weekly posts to Facebook?

I plan to do a daily photo blog on a site such as Tumblr or Flickr. I'd like automatic updates posted to my Facebook profile on a weekly basis, instead of every time I upload a new photo. Is there a way to automate this? I'm guessing it will involve RSS. Totally willing to use a 3rd party app/widget/site.

Minimalist Website or Windows Application for Facebook Status Updating?

Does anyone know of a somewhat minimalist Windows program (or perhaps even a website) that would let me merely type a Facebook status update with little distraction on the screen aside from a countdown of characters left -- a sort of WriteRoom or Q10 for updates, although it doesn't necessarily need to hide menu bars and taskbars and so on? Ideally an application I could bring up by clicking on a system tray update. I'm uninterested in Facebook notifications. Basically, I'm just looking for something that would let me quickly update my status with little visual distraction and then move on to whatever else I was doing at the time.

Short film about dangers of online social chat and murder? Screencasted!

A while ago I saw an amusing "short creative film". It was all told on computer screens, like a screen cast where you watch people type an work on their computer. In it you see a lot of typing in a chat room or forum, and the theme is that a stranger they are talking to is actually a murderer of some kind. I just realised this a really cool new way of storytelling through social media and wanted to watch it again. Can anyone remember what it is? [more inside]

FB Fan Page Help

I've Googled this 20 different ways and still can't find an answer. I made a FaceBook fan page for my friend's business. For some reason, the only way people can see this page is when they are logged into FaceBook. I know other businesses have their fan pages somehow visible to the public (so that people don't have to log into FB to see it). All of my setting are set to "everyone". Any idea how to make this page visible to everyone without requiring them to log in?
