More about this extension

The Facebook Dashboard lets you easily change your Facebook status, check messages
and friend activities, as well as comment on and like or unlike posts.

• Easy to use interface
• Uses Facebook Connect to keep your login safe
• Track messages and friend activity with an icon counter
• Quickly change or clear your Facebook status
• Read, like, or comment on what your friends are doing
• Check how many messages you have on Facebook

• If updating seems like it's taking too long, close and re-open the popup.
• Full notifications are not currently available from Facebook's API.
• We will be looking into the friend activity badge counter.
• Useful suggestions and critiques are graciously appreciated.

    Is it supposed to show a number if I have unread friend activity? Because it’s not showing and I would want to see it

    By the way, I like that it uses FB connect, the other FB extensions keep logging out after a while.

    Komesanos, we’re working on an update to fix the badge counters as well as add in notifications list and count.

  4. Stefan Ljungwall says:

    I’d like support for Å å, Ä ä and Ö ö. If I use any of them, I can’t update my FB status!

  5. BuildAGadget says:

    Stefan, we looked into a way to do this. Unfortunately what we turned up was that we can send in the characters to Facebook correctly encoded. However, Facebook isn’t decoding them properly so that they get posted to everyone as gibberish.

    Not sure if this is an intentional bug or if FB never thought about how to post special characters in their commands. The problem exists for all developers though. If they ever fix it, we’ll fix our extension soon after.

    This extension is not working on my chrome.
    It gives the following error

    You don’t have permission to access /Gadgets/Core/FB/FB_Storage_Chrome.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    chaitanya, we did a server migration over the weekend and the connect scripts were down, but they should be working now. Try refreshing the page a couple times if it’s cached.
