Feed Dialog – Message field deprecated!!!

facebookI’ve an iOS application named Translator Free  where I have been using Facebook iOS library to share translated text as user’s facebook status. Some day ago I noticed that facebook deprecated the message field. They deprecated it in July 12, 2011 and I noticed it much later. I’m surprised for their decision.

What’s the problem if a person like to share pre-populated text as his status message. I don’t know why they took the decision!!

So if you need to update user’s status using facebook iOS SDK you can do the following way:


Instead of using the below code

[facebook dialog:@"feed"

Use the following solution

 [facebook requestWithGraphPath:@"me/feed"

    I can make fb apps and it work perfect if the Options Secure browsing is Disabled

    But when the secure browsing is enabled it got error.

    upload all my file to there and it all done ?

    I don’t know anything about https.

    FB idiots are giving ‘ has been deemed abusive or is otherwise disallowed’ warning even for self status post through /me/feed or FRIEND_ID/feed php code

    Nearly 8 solutions posted on net declared working results in the same. I changed domains
    also incase particular domain is black-listed

    Graph is most UN-friendly API to developers

    People keep stumbling on this is (1) Not Allowed (2) Deprecated (3) Un-stable (4) Not Working Anymore
