Stupid Facebook Tricks - Extensions and Feed Managers

What extensions or settings do you use to keep everybody else's comments and activities out of your Facebook feed? And this is after having gone through and changed your feed to a Friends list and deselecting activities such as "Comments and Likes" from your Friends. [more inside]

My son's biological father has friended me on Facebook. What next?

My 8 year old son has never met his biological father and would like to do so. I don't want his heart to break if his bio-father doesn't want contact. I'm only assuming that he doesn't want contact because apart from the befriending we haven't actually said anything to each other via voice or email for about 6 years or so. What is the best way to approach this? [more inside]

I would like to download a particular Facebook Chat session.

Been communicating with a family member who prefers Facebook Chat to other forms of chat, and I would like to download the entire conversation to have the text at my disposal. I can scroll up and laboriously copy/paste, but this is tedious. Difficulties: 9 months of a pretty much every day conversation, going back to March of this year. Mac OS. [more inside]

Do I not understand Facebook standards?

I feel ridiculous for even asking but...I have a very happy and satisfying relationship with my domestic partner of several years. Seriously...everything's fine except for this one little thing...it's about how we both approach Facebook (we're both in our late 30's). He and I don't communicate, like or comment on each other's walls and we never have. But he does comment in a somewhat flirty manner with his exes (and I mean these are women from MANY years ago), and I've asked him, "What's up with that?" and his response has been, "It's nothing. Just being chatty." [more inside]

I dou't kuow what this is abont

There are 2 people on my Facebook feed who will consistently mix up the letter "n" with the letter "u" such that "cousin" looks like "consin" and "don't" looks like "dout". I was wondering if anyone else has noticed people doing this, is this was a common thing in Northern Ireland (where both are from, but they were not raised together) or some weird idiosyncrasy? My pattern-seeking brain is seeking relief. [more inside]

How to usefully download posts and comments from a secret Facebook group

I have been running a Facebook group since 2012 and I got a grant to do research with the findings from it. I need to download the group's postings and responses into a table and thinking the most reliable way to do so is with SQL. However, I have only just started with SQL and although I have found some ideas on Github for doing it, have no idea how to get started with pulling the information. I am seeking advice and possible alternatives. Can you help?

One Extraordinary Facebook Post? Nope, that's not it.

So, I've been recently tasked with managing my company's Facebook page. I haven't been a big user of any social media sites before, but I'm managing ok.: new content is getting added, banners are updated, likes go up, a couple new users... that kind of thing. So here's what happened: one post got a huge Reach number compared to all my other posts and I don't know why. I'd really like to know why, so that, if at all possible, I can repeat it. [more inside]

Like boldomatic, but for a desktop browser. (*sigh*)

I'm looking for a dead-simple tool that generates an image consisting of text on a plain, colored, rectangular background for posting to social media. (Please stop yelling. I agree with you. A family friend has asked me repeatedly for a recommendation. Saying, "no," is absolutely not an option here.) Is there an existing, uncomplicated tool that does this already? Browser-based would be fantastic. [more inside]

Can you sell the opportunity to post ads on a private facebook group?

A professional association (non-profit) of which I am a member has a private facebook group and a dead-tree newsletter. Advertising a job opportunity in the newsletter costs a few tens of dollars. The association wants to include the advert on the Facebook group as part of that fee, and prevent anyone posting a vacancy on Facebook unless they pay the same fee. Aside from its innate stupidity (these jobs are always on mailing lists, LinkedIn, twitter and so on anyway) this feels to me like it must be in breach of Facebook's TOS somehow. But googling "pay to advertise|post| on facebook" just leads to SEO-marketing hell, and it would be a real shame if the organisation gets its group banned or closed. Does anyone have any idea if this is a legitimate thing to do?

What's causing Word and Facebook to break at the same time?

When I'm working, I often have Word 2010 document open and Facebook open in a Chrome browser tab. Every so often, I'll try to close a Word doc and it'll hang with "not responding". Simultaneously, I'm unable to do anything in Facebook - can't scroll, click, etc. Every other Chrome tab works fine, every other Windows application works fine. I can close the FB tab, but the Word doc is still stuck. Restarting Chrome and Word doesn't do anything. Task Manager doesn't show any unusual activity or processes running. [more inside]

What's happening with these friend requests?

Facebook is adding friends that I've never met and giving the message saying that I've requested the friendship (as in: "So-and-so has accepted your friend request"). To the best of my knowledge, I have not. In both cases these were recently created profiles, but unlike spam profiles I've seen in the past, these are both related to some friends that I actually do know in real life, and aren't obvious scams with super model photos. This happened two days ago, and yesterday. [more inside]

Moral one-upmanship on Facebook: the story behind the story?

So it seems like the Boston bombings have caused a sizeable minority of my FB friends to start admonishing everyone for not being more upset about 'real' bombings in the middle east/ deaths in Africa.
