Crappy Facebook “Like” Bug

 |  Geek, Interwebs

I finally got round to tweaking my sidebar and bringing individual sidebars for posts back (with just related posts for now, but with more post info coming soon). Anyway, I also added a Facebook like button as a temporary thing until I re-code the original share buttons I had, only to find my logs ram-packed with weird requests from facebook with ?fb_xd_fragment appended to the URL.

It’s something to do with outdated Flash players and Internet Explorer; I skim-read the bug report on it to find no real solution (just a multitude of crappy hacks). What surprises me is that this bug is a year old and hasn’t been sorted yet!

Anyway, my apologies if you had problems loading the site in IE earlier.

    Doesn’t surprise me in the least bit that it’s over a year old. FB is pants, but somehow fascinating in the way people will seemingly find it necessary to divulge their entire life history and so much personal information without a care in the world.
    Heyho, fools seldom differ I guess. I’ll stick to ‘lol’ing at comments and hitting the like button now and then just to keep ’em guessing.
