Wait, what?

Looks like you came here from Geekosystem. Don't worry, everything is still here. We've just combined forces with The Mary Sue to bring you more and better content, all in one place.

Post to Your Facebook From Hogwarts or a Dr. Pepper

If you’ve ever had the desire to post to Facebook from a device that doesn’t actually have Facebook support, fear not, a solution is upon us. Redditor leftoverusername has shared a way to mess with your Facebook URL that allows you to spoof the API. In short, you can tell Facebook that you are posting from a typerwriter, Hogwarts, cheese, or even a sperm whale, regardless of whether or not you actually are. Kudos if you actually hacked your sperm whale to post to Facebook.

It probably won’t be long until this fun little trick gets popular enough to be noticed and subsequently blocked, but until then, post witty, pop culture statuses that will amaze your friends and strike fear in the hearts of your enemies. Explain the trick at the risk of ending the fun that much faster. That being said, check out in-depth, step-by-step instructions below.

How to post from almost anything:

Use this link template to write on a friends wall, replace the “123456789″ for target_id with your friends id number, and replace the “123456789″ for api_key with a number from the list below

?preview=true&display=touch&
api_key=123456789&target_id=123456789

Be sure to keep an eye on that Reddit thread where I’m sure a few new API keys will show up.

And also, this website will automate the process for you and presumably has an updated list of possible sources. Enjoy.
