This post has been lying around my Drafts for about a month. While I was looking for ways to find mutual friends between two persons in Facebook, I realized that it is a painful job which involves a lot of playing around with Facebook API’s to get mutual friends listed. Whereas finding Mutual friends in Twitter is quite simple and so does with Identica too. You may find how to find them in this blog.
Let’s see how to achieve this..
1. Install fbcmd as per the blog post
2. Open your terminal and type the following to find mutual friendship between you and your friend
$ fbcmd mutual “<Enter_your_friend’s_full_name_within_quotes>”
For Example :
$ fbcmd mutual “vigneshwaran Raveendran”
Vigneshwaran Raveendran Kashi Vishwanath Revathy Ganesan
Isn’t that awesome. The following are a few commands that I felt it interesting..
How to list [and optionally save] all your friend’s profile photos ?
$ fbcmd ppics =all /tmp/fbcmd/ppics/
How to list [and optionally save] all photos where friend(s) are tagged
$ fbcmd fpics
How to list any friends who are currently online
$ fbcmd fonline
$ fbcmd finfo birthday_date -csv
$ fbcmd whoami
$ fbcmd status “is excited to play with fbcmd”
$ fbcmd help #is your friend..
