Johnny Appseed

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).

Facebook profile ripping?

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?

Rebuilding a friend community on Facebook

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!

I want to be able to invite all my friends to a Facebook event in one go.

So, Facebook won't let me invite all my friends at once to an event I created. Instead, I have to manually click on all my friends, one at a time, to invite them. I used to use this very useful code as a workaround. But about 2 weeks ago, Facebook changed it all again, so the code doesn't work anymore. Does anyone have a new workaround? Or, can codemonkeys take a look at the code to see if there's any minor tweaks that can be made to make it work again? Thanks in advance. [more inside]

WTF, Facebook? Question about privacy.

All of a sudden, I can see comments that my friends post on the status or links of people who aren't my friends. And vice-versa. So, if I post a comment on Joe's status update or link, Sally can see my comment and Joe's status/link even though Sally and Joe are not friends. This seems to be new, and is a bug, not a feature. Any way to control this on my end? [more inside]
