Facebook Stream API support in FriendBinder

Facebook yesterday updated their API to allow more access to the stream. This means that we can now read replies and likes to items in the stream. We have implemented this for status updates today and we will support the other types in the next few days.

Facebook will soon allow replying and liking of these items and we will support that when it is available.

New Twitter Features in FriendBinder

We have added a number of small features to improve experience of using Twitter on FriendBinder. They are all additions to the "stream" page.

We have changed the "reply" and "re-tweet" feature so can now reply inline without navigating away from the page:
We have add a search replies link, which again works inline, that tries to find replies to the twitter message from everyone (not just your friends).

We can also find the message that someone replied to (though this working depends on their client having been updated with the feature)
and finally, we have implemented inline viewing of pictures from TwitPic, Twitgoo, yfrog, pix.im and img.ly.
Please let us know what you think or if you have any suggestions on how we can improve FriendBinder.
