Facebook Reference HTML
Short, concise description of the idea
Provide a short HTML syntax for referencing FB users, equivalent to the <lj user=""> notation.
Full description of the idea
I recently had my first FB friend comment on a post. It made me realize there is no easy way to refer to him and link to his FB as I can with LJ posts. I'm suggesting something like <lj fbuser="fb-user-name"> as a syntax. This would produce something similar to the LJ reference but with the FB logo.
It may be worthwhile to see whether a similar notation could be developed for other OpenID sites, and it might even be expanded to permit reference to DW users.
- Makes it easier to reference users welcomed to LJ via FB Connect.
- Makes it easier to reference OpenID and DW users, if extended to those.
- It might make is easier to connect LJ users and FB identities, although this is clearly an opt-in on usage.
