It is no big deal actually.  If you spend time on Twitter or Facebook already, this notifies people of latest posts in their Twitter updates list or Facebook friends feed.  The entire post is not sent, and they have to click on the link and visit the RC India page to view the full post.

But if you use the "Notify" option on the boards that are of interest to you (may be all of them Wink ), then the entire post is emailed to you.

Hi Anwar,
How about the truncating the RCI heading to say max 60 character, down from 140 characters in Twitter ? It would help people like me who use Twitter Gadget and space is a premium to track other folks' tweet ?

What is the "RCI Heading" you are referring to ?  The topic/thread name ?  I have only limited control over that.  Either "Title only" or "Description Only" or the current setting of "Title + Description".  I have no ability to control the number of characters, unless I find another way to do this, or write code Wink

Yes, the text lines we see under 'Recently Updated Topics' . Twitter anyway has this 140 Char restriction. It would be better if we introduce further brevity. Its been 6-7 years I last did PhP. So some one else familiar with this SMF BB framework would be able to answer.  I guess SMF would have implemented Twitter API for the same. It should not difficult to fine the line where the API is called and before posting the entire title, shorten it with :

        $NumChars = 60; 
        $title = $title." ";
        $title = substr($title,0,$NumChars );
        $title = substr($title,0,strrpos($title,' '));
        $title = $title."...";

Haha, not really Wink First of all, I would not make the forum dump every post into Twitter real time using such code. Basically I am using something that reads the forum (via RSS) periodically just like any user and feeds it into Twitter (or others), and that piece is 3rd party with me having only limited control over it.

Since Facebook and Twitter have become much more universal, I have enabled sharing RC India material on these two social networking platforms. 

The big choice was whether to enable it once per thread, or on each post.  Since only one post in a thread may be the outstanding one, it was decided to enable it on all posts... although it does seem to add some clutter.  Let me see if I can mess with the background for that part to make it better.

Hopefully, we will now see more material posted here, and only linked in Facebook (instead of the other way around with some members that we are seeing currently Wink )

Well, the credit goes to the folks to wrote the actual SMF mod Wink

What I was wondering about is... everyone who has something for sale now on the forum should be using the "Like" option so that their item gets visibility on Facebook also !  Who knows, someone from FB know is not on RCI (regularly?) may pick it up !

Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



I not use them. IS i have to remark on the items of this forum which reside outside the forum server ? and total tweeting will be there? So, the main thread be here and rest will be there. At first I thought that all the conversation will be here, but now spreading.

Look, the egypt episode have increased the craze/traffic of social networking but the stability of forum more than social networking I Think.

The big difference is that information on the forums are more permanent. 

Social networking sites are good for keeping in touch with friends and family, but not as a special interest group, where information persistance is desired.
