What I learned from 2 million followers

by on Nov.03, 2016, under marketing, social media

I compiled these slides with a heavy heart after losing my facebook page on 8th Jun 2016.
Giving this talk is perhaps my way to memorializing 5 years of work and countless hours put in.

Not all is lost, I learnt a lot in the process and I know what makes the web and people tick.
I’m relieved I don’t have to put in all the time and effort to maintain this baby which has grown too big to handle.

So farewell to my 2.15 million followers, you will be missed.

Creating the Facebook ‘Like’ button on your website/blog

by on Apr.23, 2010, under marketing, technology, wordpress

It’s much simpler than I expected! I originally wanted to leave it till i’m back home but did it in less than 5 mins..

All you need to do is to fill in the boxes to generate the code at

My code looks like

<iframe src=”http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwillyfoo.com&amp;layout=standard&amp;show_faces=true
&amp;width=280&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light” scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ allowTransparency=”true” style=”border:none;
overflow:hidden; width:280px; height:px”></iframe>

If you’re using WordPress, just go to Widgets and create a text widget and paste it in! Simple as that!

Update (27th Apr) : If you want to add the ‘Like’ or ‘Recommend’ button to individual blog posts, just add a plug-in.
There are a few available, I’m using http://blog.gunnjerkens.com/2010/04/facebook-like-plugin-for-wordpress/

Facebook Connect for WordPress

by on Sep.08, 2009, under wordpress

Whew.. it’s been ages since I updated or even touched this blog. But due to a WordPress Attack that’s going around, it forced me to upgrade my WordPress to ver 2.8.4.

Since i’m meddling with it now, might as well update it with a few new plugins like Facebook Connect and perhaps Facebook Updates..

Update: Ok.. need to get an API key from the Facebook Application Registration Page, it then asks me to wait for a while for the API Key to propogate to other servers but I’ve a feeling something’s missing here.

Update: What was missing is that I needed to fill in the “Connect URL” in the “Connect Tab” in “Edit Settings“! Viola.. please help me test if this works!

Update: Hmm.. the “Facebook Connect” button only shows up in the Site Admin login but not the comments box.. have to find out how to include that.

Update: A line needs to be included in comments.php

<?php do_action(‘fbc_display_login_button’) ?>

As instructed in http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/WP-FBConnect
