KNOWN ISSUES:

1. Facebook:

  • Current implementation doesn't make consume the Facebook Insights API.
  • Prospect list is known to be accurate though incomplete (only the first four elements of each entity seem to get reported). It seems to be a problem or a limitation on the current implementation of the Facebook Module.

2. Data Sets:

  • The Update-DataSet command add an additional $null object as the first element of the object collection that creats as its output. The source of this problem is still under research.

$UpdatedCampaign = Update-DataSet $campaign -with $FBTimeLine -using $FBMappingRules
WORKAROUND:
$UpdatedCampaign = $(Update-DataSet $campaign -with $FBTimeLine -using $MappingRules) -ne $null

3. General:

  • Current Libraries don't work reliably under a PowerShell Module. However, they do work perfectly fine as standalone functions under the context of the 'Social Media Scripting Console'. The source of this problem is still under research.
