How do I deal with blog comment fragmentation? I use Twitterfeed to feed my (Blogger) entries over to Facebook, so my friends playing ant farm or whatever the hell they do on FB can read my stuff. But some people comment on the blog, others comment on FB, and I'd like the blog to be the permanent record of comments. So....is there an alternative besides manually bringing over each new FB comment to my blog (i.e. posting the comment under my own username, with a header of, like, "Shelly says......")?

Google, Gmail and Facebook rolled out some major redesigns recently. In fact they look quite similar to me; a bunch of random floating lists and boxes, with a dark bar at the top. What's the philosophy beside the aesthetic choices? I realize that there are technical improvements going on behind the scenes and that taste is subjective. Still, there must be some reason Google and Facebook would make major cosmetic changes. Hey designers, what's the logic?

Tell me about Youth app development projects, please!! Things like the Stanford Fall 2007 "Facebook Class" are a good starting point but we're even more interested in projects in underprivileged community (US/non-US) or developing country contexts that involve youths in app development (for any platform, not just Facebook and including mobile).

A third-party website has created a "profile" for me on their own site, using my main Facebeook picture, which turns up on the first page of Google hits for my full name. It seems to be some kind of cheesy dating site and I really don't want it up there. I've never used the site, or interacted with it in any way (I don't use any FB apps at all, and am savvy enough not to click on spammy links). Do I have any recourse for getting this taken down?

Why are so many sites these days switching to Facebook commenting systems?

So I tried to get off of Facebook forever about a month ago by deleting my account (not just deactivating it) and was successful: no more profile or contacts. However, since graduating from my MBA program, I feel the pull to get back on it. This time I started to focus on only adding my close friends and business school classmates, but when I added a bunch of people today I was given a few warnings about 'annoying or abusive behavior.' I naturally stopped sending friend requests, but now I'm wondering how soon can I add friends after such a warning and how does one go about rebuilding the friend base when Facebook hits you with these warnings? Thanks in advance for the response!

Developers and content curators: Help me with some market research. I am trying to find an off-the-shelf solution or to spec out how to develop a solution to the following problem. My organization is looking to setup an internal collection, curation, and distribution system to push multimedia content to hundreds of social media accounts (in dozens of languages) with potentially hundreds of users. Ability to enable push-button publishing via Facebook, Twitter, and other APIs through a plug-in architecture. Sound interesting? Read on. [more inside]

There are two sets of FB "likes" that I would like to be synched; one, the likes on the website's posts, and the other, the likes I get when I link to those posts on Facebook. 21 people like my latest post on my website, but only one person has liked the link I put about the post on facebook. Can I get the two to add together with some automatic gizmo? Thanks mefi!
