so i think i misspoke in irc. it looks like we only support links to FB user ids right now, not usernames or web sites. details on how to find someone's FB user id: https://indiewebcamp.com/person-tag#Bridgy_Publish

this may have been a regression. I'll try to add back support for those kinds of links. not sure it will work, since i suspect FB needs global user ids for tags, not app scoped, but I'll keep this open to track!

aha, i was wrong, we do support domains and FB usernames in person tag links after all.

AS object snippet from this post (log):

"tags": [{
  "url": "https://www.facebook.com/alexandra.pinnock.35",
  "displayName": "@https://www.facebook.com/alexandra.pinnock.35",
  "objectType": "person"
  }, 
  "..."
]

still investigating.

so, https://www.facebook.com/alexandra.pinnock.35 didn't work because she's not signed up for bridgy, so we don't know her username => user id mapping, and https://www.facebook.com/jay.funabashi00xx.940436 didn't work because we don't know your username either (and haven't seen a syndication URL to infer it from yet). background on FB usernames and user ids. background in #568, #350, etc.

...yeah, person tagging is obviously limited. :P i'll add all this to the docs.
