To iterate is human, to recurse divine.

WordPress and Facebook

Posted: December 3rd, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Soapbox | No Comments »

So after a bit of scouring the interwebs, I’ve found a plugin that should forward all my blog posts to my Facebook page. So in a way, this is a kind of test to see if it works.

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of Facebook. When I first signed up a couple of years ago because it was the new “big thing”, I got inundated with silly stuff like invites to play games involving zombies, vampires, pirates robots – you name it. These are little more than time sinks. But as time sinks, they are really big! So a couple of weeks after I signed up, I deactivated my account and forgot about it.

Recently, for the Ninja Assassin game for iPhone, one of my tasks was to set up Facebook Connect to update highscores in the game to the users’ Facebook pages. So, in the name of testing, I reactivated my Facebook account, and wo behold, everybody’s still there.

Publicity is publicity, so I’ve looked at new ways to capitalize on Facebook as a way to reach out to people, and this is one of them. So if anybody’s looking for a freelance game developer, drop me a line eh?
