- Facebook seems to prefer the newer (POST / POSTIMG) method of publishing stories, but they currently still publish short stories to the stream (but the "message/status" field is blank).
- The one advantage FEED2 has the single advantage over (POST / POSTIMG) is that the body text supports some html tags (ie: links).
- FEED2 requires extended PUBLISH permissions: click (here) to grant fbcmd the PUBLISH permissions
