Facebook has comment spam filters that will, by default, hide certain comments (unless the post owner goes in and manually unhides them). The comments remain in the comment count but don't show up to the public (if it's your post you can see three dots and click to manage the spam posts). I'm not sure if there is an official list of what's spam-worthy ...

Here are the steps you should follow Settings Notification Birthday Note:You shouldn't use greasemonkey scripts for Facebook. Unless you read over the code to know what is actually happening.

Okay I have found the solution to block this status. Basically Facebook uses a timer and so it will send a heartbeat message to their servers with the idle time every x minutes. Here is an example of such web request: https://1-edge-chat.facebook.com/pull?channel=userid&seq=0&partition=-2&clientid=18ae8ecc&cb=ie3k&idle=117&qp=y&...

Great question, though there doesn't appear to be any definitive answer. I think @1kenthomas 's answer is better than the accepted one, as there was (presumably) an attempt to obtain empirical evidence. So, I've done a series of manual tests as of a few minutes ago, and the result was exactly 7,897 characters was the limit. Even one character more causes ...

You cannot find it out You cannot see who has blocked you on Facebook.

This is part of Facebook's privacy and security measures. And to ...

I wrote a user script that does that! Available on my GitHub, on Greasy Fork and OpenUserJS, under the MIT license. What it does It checks if it's on a video page (URL contains /videos/) and if so: It checks every half a second if the popup appeared, and if so - removes it. It also cancels the next video from playing automatically. The code snippet It'...

Hi, first of all I'd like to share my methodology: The first step was to find out how these tweets were being posted (e.g. using a Twitter client such as TweetDeck, a third-party service such as Facebook, or directly from the Twitter website). Until recently, this could be done from Twitter itself, but they've recently removed this information from the ...
