Smell You Later FBML. Can’t Says as I’ll Miss Ya.

Don’t say you weren’t warned. If you are still leaning on any – repeat ANY FBML code on your Facebook page, time to man up and dump it. You are going to be up the creek soon enough if you don’t.

Currently the FBML page on Facebook states “FBML has been removed. If you are building a new application on Facebook.com, please implement your application using HTML, JavaScript and CSS. You can use our JavaScript SDK and Social Plugins to embedded many of the same social features which were available in FBML. ”

I really did not understand why they tried to implement thier own version of HTML and it was a real pain to deal with. The current Page App tab solution is far superior. Growing pains I suspect.

From Facebook:

The following change will go into effect on December 5th, 2012:

Removing the Static FBML Page tab app
We removed FBML in July of this year so any FBML code that was being used in the Static FBML Page app would have stopped working at that time. However, the Static FBML Page app is still able to render plain HTML. On December 5th, we will remove the Static FBML Page app and any Static FBML tabs you had installed on your Page will disappear. To replace any Static FBML tabs you may be using, we recommend you either host your own content and create your own Page tab or search the web for “Static HTML Facebook Page Tab” to find a replacement.
