When you click in the Update Status box, you’ll see your closest city listed in the gray bar along the bottom. Mouse over that city and click the little ‘x’ to the right of it. Presto! No more location information tacked onto your status updates. If you want to restore it, just mouse over the now-blank area where the city used to appear, then click Add ...

I don't now that this is conclusive (eg applies in general) but the top right corner of the first link in the OP has: and the second: so it seems the Create Page or Join Group may be the indication required.

Zapier has a recipe that can do this. I've just set it up and tested it and it seems to work well. It creates a new Facebook Page Event when a new Google Calendar entry is created. So far, I've only got it triggering when a new event is created in G Cal, but it might be possible to get it to go through the G Cal diary and transfer existing events. Recipe ...

Facebook has, according to Reuters, relaxed their real name-policy. According to this article, you should be able to use an alias. But you're expected to use a name that others will know you by, according to Facebook's Chris Cox: Our policy has never been to require everyone on Facebook to use their legal name. The spirit of our policy is that everyone ...

Do you mean "Facebook account", by saying "Facebook profile for my store"? You probably know that in accordance with the FB rules, a profile/account should be created for an individual.

Join the two results into one, then use the same API to either create a new list or update one of the two lists with the new members.

It turns out you need to get a minimum of 25 likes first. Another reason for this message can be that certain words (like 'facebook') are restricted, or that the username was reserved by an earlier page that's no longer up. For more, see also https://www.facebook.com/help/211337555567785

This is not possible anymore. A couple of years ago you could just choose the option "merge lists" in the drop-down-menu in the upper right corner of the list (See this post from 2011). But this is not possible since Facebook revamped the lists in 2011. Old lists (lists created before 3rd quarter of 2011) should still have the possibility to be merged into ...

A possible scenario is that the username was taken at one point and then the page was deleted / username changed of the page. This makes the username unavailable for an unspecified period of time.

I'm not aware of a built-in tracking feature for that (I'm a group admin too). As an admin of a closed group, the member tools seem limited to accepting, removing and blocking members. Looking at some of the site FAQs, I couldn't find a clear answer to your question, although there are a couple of pages that indirectly relate to member tracking, and both ...

I am observing the same thing while other friends are NOT seeing it. I suspect we might be part of one of Facebook's A/B tests. Yes, I totally care that your crazy cousin from Fresno shared a link to a Awesome Formula One video. Oh and I see your coworker wants you to like the new Nissan Stanza. I'm glad I didn't miss that important event in your life. ...

If have found that IFTTT recipies like this one, does have some limitations to the autosharing of youtube videoes. I ran into the problem of autosharing scheduled videos. IFTTT support confirmed this for me when I contacted them. If you want your video to be published at the same time it is uploaded, there's no problem in using IFTTT, but if you (like me) ...

IFTTT can't handle sheduled published videoes. Their support clarified this for me when I contacted them. The free service Zapier, on the other hand, can solve this problem for you. I modified this zap a little: http://zpr.io/GTQz and it works like a charm. Now I have Zapier zap a link from YouTube to my Facebook every time a shedueled video goes live. I ...

There is a very easy way which should work in all browsers. Step 1: Go to the page with the video. You can press the timestamp at the top of a post to go to just that post. Step 2: Replace "www." in the url with "m." For example, https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=352384258268258&permPage=1 should become ...

Yes, you can. Just go to the post* with the video and replace "www.facebook.com" in the url with "m.facebook.com". This will redirect to the mobile version of the page which has a direct link to the video. For example: Replace https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=12345678990&permPage=1 with https://m.facebook.com/video.php?v=12345678990&permPage=1. ...

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to do what you're asking to do, and likely will not be. Facebook's customization options are deceptively sparse, and they intentionally limit user usability in order to maintain more direct control over the content users are exposed to. There is a surprising lack of other obvious features, in (for example) Newsfeed ...

%3Frel%3D0 is just the URL encoded version of ?rel=0 You can check it here. And can read more about URL encoding here. Why this happens only sometimes and not some other times, I don’t know, but is exactly the same thing. And I think the fmt parameter is deprecated, which means most likely it will not work.

It is not possible to publicly post a photo on Facebook and have it hidden from the timeline feed. A possible work around to minimize the timeline exposure is to post it privately, then a week or so later make it public. Because it is old Facebook's algorithms may not show not as broadly, but no guarantee.
