As happened a few months ago I get [4] Application request limit reached
instead of any confirmation messages when I run fbcmd commands this morning.
This did happen to some other folks back then, how about today? What happens with the FB api that causes this garbage?
Anyone have the FB complaints department email?
I'm not very patient with Facebook junk like this, and want to make sure they give high priority to keeping their monster accessible with useful and
important 3rd party aps, not just stupid time wasting games and the like.

Yeah, I got that and have switched away from using fbcmd because of
it. I'd happily get my own app ID stuff if I could figure out which
bits of what Facebook tells me I could use for that.

Or I could do what I'm doing, let Twitter forward the stuff I used to
post via fbcmd, and hope that Facebook eventually withers and fails
because of policies like this.

Actually, this has only happened twice to me, well on two days, and it has nothing to do with how much I've used fbcmd.
It must be some bug with the api, not a policy in this case, although there are plenty of things not to like about FB.
They won't be going away anytime soon, still growing, but except for a few markets the pace of groth has certainly slowed as they've come close to
saturation point and have alienated a fair percentage of the folks who are not using, and some who are still onboard, but either find it too much
trouble to delete accounts or actually feel stuck as they do receive some benefit from FB.
Most of what I tweet I'd not particularly want on FB, but some things I would, and I'd like to tweet a link and resume of some FB posts.
How have you been sending your tweets to FBCMD post?

I haven't, before this...

I have a couple of scripts with a basic web UI that let me post a
short comment and optional photo to one of my own blogs, and then
optionally spit that out to other sites: My other blog, Twitter,
Facebook, formerly Identi.ca, etc.

I used to use fbcmd to do the Facebook side of that, but when it
started failing with that error (which I suspect is due to too many
people using fbcmd and the application key embedded in it), I had to
find another solution.

Alas, Facebook has deprecated stand-alone non-mobile apps, so I
couldn't just register my own app and replace fbcmd's application keys
with those (may be possible, I didn't see the obvious solution). So I
just turned on Twitter feeding to Facebook as an interim step.

Considering maybe using a second Twitter account to do more
fine-grained pushing to Facebook.
