Why is Facebook scanning the ultimaker forum ?

I spot sometimes an external user called Facebook scanning the ultimaker forum sometimes.

I dont really understand why ?

I know google and the other search engines scan forums for content... but why facebook ?

This forum and what goes on here has no effect on facebooks diary style system.

Or maybe facebook simply has some excess network power and decided to scan and stockpile information on external online information sources..

    Sometimes people post a link to facebook that points to this forum. Facebook has to scan this forum to locate possible icons to go along with the post. Sometimes facebook includes the title tag in the posting.

    I'm guessing that is it but I don't know.

    Also at the bottom of this page is a facebook "like" button. Everytime someone clicks on that, facebook is going to scan this page also and put something on the person's feed possibly.

    bing and facebook have a partnership (microsoft owns a lot of facebook). I think bing search is hoping (or already does) to use this "like" data as SEO companies create thousands of fake websites every day and the "like" button on this forum can help weed out this kind of thing.

    If someone else knows more then I'd love to hear it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
