Usage

{{FacebookCite|author=|dateposted=|timeposted=|description=|quote=|link=|archive=|dateaccessed=|timeaccessed=|archivedate=|image=}}

Required parameters

  • |author= Author being cited in the linked post.
  • |dateposted= The date of the Author's cited comments.
  • |description= A short description or title of the citation.
  • |link= Permanent URL to Facebook wall post, excluding the https://www.facebook.com/ portion.

Optional parameters

  • |archive= Offsite (non-Facebook) archive link, using a service such as imgur for screenshots. WebCite will not work, as Facebook uses various JavaScript hacks and server-side redirects to deliberately block it. If the archive image has been uploaded to Wookieepedia, use the filename (minus the File: prefix) instead of a full URL.
    • For private conversations with authors, provided that permission is given, an |archive= URL (but only an archive URL) is required. A |link= parameter can also be excluded and an archive URL used instead if a wall post is archived but deleted from Facebook before a permalink is recorded.
  • |quote= A short excerpt from the citation for quick reference in the article.
  • timeposted The time when the Facebook post was posted, in 24-hour format (13:58, not 1:58pm)
  • |dateaccessed= The last date the Facebook permalink was confirmed live by a Wookieepedia editor.
  • |timeaccessed= The last date the Facebook permalink was confirmed live by a Wookieepedia editor. Note: The time MUST be in 24-hour format (for example 13:58, not 1:58pm).
  • |archivedate= The date the archive copy was created.
  • |image= The filename of a screenshot of the post. If no image is accessible, then use |noimage=, but only if the post in question is deleted or otherwise inaccessible.

Alternatively, for linking directly to an individual page, use |userpage= for the link to the specific page and |description= for the name.

In June 2014, it it was made compulsory (item 14) to include a screenshot with all social media citations. Accordingly, if this template is used in the article namespace without the |userpage=, |archive= or |image= parameters, the page will be added to Category:Social media citations without screenshots.
