Fosimo 0.9 is Available; Facebook Platform Unstable

Fosimo new version

Fosimo Icon Fosimo 0.9 is available. You can download it for free here (requires .NET Framework 2.0 or later). Fosimo is a Facebook desktop client for windows.


In this release:

  • Default status monitor interval increased to 15 minutes. This feature is configurable, however the change of the default setting comes as a result of fine tuning.
  • Max 5 status updates shown at once. People with hundreds and even thousands of friends will usually have more than 5 friends status updates, however 5 is the number that fits the screen and readable at a glance.

The trouble is that application users just think that application is unstable or something.


Facebook applications statistics is half broken, application directory search does not work for new applications, etc. I have a strong feeling that their own arrogance would kill them. I'm in doubt that facebook people do really realize this, given the huge hype they get from the media. They fix only critical issues and don't care about "minor". On the other hand they do implement new features on the platform, many times breaking backward compatibility and introducing some weird stuff. Like "Facebook Javascript". WTF man ?

Apparently Facebook does not perform integration tests, therefore each push can break applications depending on the platform. Because of the fact that each push is performed too frequently without enough testing the platform became unstable [ ... ]
