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"
	 andParams:params 
	 andDelegate:self]; 

Use the following solution

 [facebook requestWithGraphPath:@"me/feed"
        andParams:params
        andHttpMethod:@"POST"
        andDelegate:self];

    Hi Mr Mahmud

    may i ask about the Secure Canvas URL .
    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.

    How to fix that ?

    upload all my file to there and it all done ?

    I don’t know anything about https.

    Regard

    Michael

    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

    sh*
