Nativescript open facebook app to someones profile

May 12, 2020

Took me a long time to get this sorted on android. Stackoverflow is full of I guess old articles saying the facebook uri is like fb://profile/username or fb://page/username.  But it doesn't work, just loads the facebook app to the default your profile view.

I guess as of a certain version it is required to load into a special child view or something, anyway, this is the code that works.

Was super straight forward on iOS, just fb://profile?id=username

Using Nativescript 6.5 Typescript
