If you are a Social Network Site(SNS) master, I am not surprised at all that you possess Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, etc. at the same time.
Twitter is fast, succinct, easy-to-use, but not that multimedia-friendly, and has 140 character limit; MySpace is self-oriented and it is more like a personal territory to display who you are and what do you like; YouTube, no doubt, is a video-sharing site that would bring you and your friends more visual enjoyment. What about Facebook? Well, it is a combination of them all and gives you 100% freedom to express yourself using all the medias like video, audio, picture, blog, note and so on.
Facebook is a totally open space that you can add almost anything you like, including flash swf file. It is quite tricky to add flash animations, for example, flash e-cards, flash movies, flash games, etc to facebook because unlike the way you add video or audio to facebook directly, you have to install an extra tab, or extension, to make your flash artwork playable on facebook.
Before we get to know how to add flash SWF to facebook, let us have a glance at the current and the most popular tabs that facebook already has: Wall, Notes, Video and Photo.
Then we come to the point: the way makes Flash SWF work in your facebook. First, make sure you had switched to your facebook page, search “fbml” in the searching box located on the top of your facebook page.
Visit the “Static FBML” page and add this application to your own page. Click “Edit Page” button on the top right to enter the page editing interface, and then choose “Apps” from navigation bar on the very left.
Now you will see the FBML application you just installed. Click “Go to App“to add your own flash to your facebook page right here.
Kindly remind two very important things here: make sure your flash SWF is hosted either by your own server or by other websites, get the URL of this flash file that you are going to add to facebook; make sure you include the following codes in FBML tab as well.
Note: replace the first URL with your own flash file’s URL and replace the second one with a picture URL as your flash icon.
Save changes and then quit the FBML edit interface, your added flash animations on facebook will look exactly like this:
