Integrating my blog into Facebook

Aha.. thanks to the WPBook plugin, now my blog and my Facebook share the same comments. Comments that was entered in Facebook will appear in my joshuatj.com blog and vice-versa. Most importantly, every new updates (like this one) will be automatically stream.publish into my Facebook Wall. Subsequently appearing in all my friends’ feed as well.

Ya, I know Facebook Notes is able to “Import a Blog” through RSS. But it’s actually a duplicate copy of the same blog post back @ joshuatj.com . Thus, it’s not elegant. Now the next step is to spice up my Facebook i.am. mirrored-blog.

Interestingly how WPbook does all these is through some magic using Facebook Connect + Facebook Application. Thank God I’ve had some experience meddling with Facebook Connect + Application. CS3216 is really empowering me lar!

  1. “CS3216 is really empowering me lar!”

    Glad to hear that. Much of CS3216 is about empowerment. It’s not about here and now, but about the future and what you can do with your life. πŸ™‚

  2. Ya, I’ve just gotten a copy of “The Last Lecture” and was reading it last night. I think Randy Pausch is really an interesting individual. However, you have to agree that he’s a bit eccentric. I guess in order to make a difference, you first must be different. Agree?

  3. Eccentricity is a pre-requisite to being a good prof. πŸ˜›

    Remember the Apple advertisement?

    I think that it’s possible to make a small difference, it’s perhaps okay to improve on status quo a little bit – and let’s not belittle the small differences. They matter too.

    However, to make a huge difference, there’s often a need to take risks and to really do things differently. The risk of failure is however significantly larger.

    What path should YOU take? That’s a choice you’d need to make. I don’t that either choice is better. They’re just, well, different. πŸ™‚

  4. I have to agree that “to make a huge difference” – we really need to do things differently, often very differently. However, during the “doing” process, the people around might not always understand what we’re “doing”, that’s the sad part.
