can somebody tell me how this is done? 301 redirect from fb shortened url?
It's a new feature.
Read this : http://www.shoutmeloud.com/fb-me-facebook-launched-its-new-url-shortening-service.html
That article somehow manages to explain it without explaining how to locate and use it.
i dont see anything in that article? oldest fb.me articles dated back to 2009. i dont know why that article is dated so recently? i know that you can shorten your fb pages using the shortener. what i wondered is how to redirect like the link i showed above.
found something, it's quite old:
it says "Facebook's link shortener is actually a CNAME to bit.ly", if it's (still) the case, i would assume you can use the bit.ly API to create fb.me urls
sorry, i dont get it. bitly API is for "3rd party applications to create Bitlinks" in this case, the '3rd party' would be facebook? so that means the site has to be some kind of partner of fb to do that (redirecting to their site)?
nobody? it looks like the fb shortener is a good backlink if a top site uses it and it shows up in the link profiles?
Separate names with a comma.
