    Faceb00k sucks, they got a new way on how to let people be aware that they must not paste js script to their browser url bar :(

    Anyone saw it?

    I'd add it's almost mandatory if you want to code anything half-serious on your own without constantly depending on the latest tool that everybody uses...

    Also without js you can't add your own twists to a lot of those scripts / apps and considering how often FB changes its own stuff you'll thank learning js each day to fix the glitches that -inevitably- you'll run into almost on a daily basis... ;)

    Start here, brother

    Code:
    http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp
    then continue honing your skills by learning jQuery and other frameworks. But the basics first and w3schools is pretty good at that.

    are you sure it made all the posts?... I'm getting the same thing, but also a message saying: "Don't worry, your account is safe. We stopped the activity".
    It made some posts but i haven't checked yet with a larger account.

    hi,
    I believe learning new things are never a wastage of time. It will be helpful in one or other way
