So Long, and Thanks for All the Pokes #1

Facebook has some amazing tech and is clearly a great platform. It just isn't for me. Once I deleted my account I wanted to mark the occasion.

Inspired by David Desandro, I created a Facebook mark out of HTML and CSS. Specifically his Curtis CSS Typfase and Opera logo with CSS were great assets. I'm a huge fan of his work.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Pokes #1

The Facebook Mark Markup

  <span class='fb'>
    <span class='highlight-top'></span>
    <span class='highlight-bottom'></span>
    <span class='f'>
      <span class='arc'>
        <span class='arc-cap'></span>
      <span class='cross'>
        <span class='cross-cap'></span>
      <span class='bd'></span>
  <span class='brand-shine'></span>

Check out the CSS in css/solongfb.css or using in your browser's inspect element option.

The JavaScript is not my best work, but hopefully read-able, see js/solongfb.js. The next experiment will have some modularity.

The Content

I borrowed from Openbook.org to pull recent public Facebook posts using the open social graph API.
