Open facebook app to someones profile
- Steve McNiven
Deeplinking to someones facebook profile from your mobile app is harder than it should be. I think at some point the syntax changed, so I spent quite a while trying to sort it out, now you don’t need to!
Stackoverflow is full of I guess old articles saying the facebook uri is like this:
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
This was tested by me using Nativescript 6.5 Typescript, however this isn’t Nativescript specific.
