Goodbye #blackboard facebook synch. Scholar to follow soon

Blackboard will be turning off their facebook synch tool because they “felt the current Facebook application has not served the client base well”. I think it also will not work with planned changes to the Facebook APIs.
Users of the tagging service Scholar have not much longer to enjoy it either: Blackboard will formally cease offering and supporting Scholar ( on the unlucky 13th of January, 2012. As such we suggest you don’t waste your time adding new scholar streams to your courses.
