Dayparting and UI tweak Scripts for Facebook, MySpace, and AdBrite

Hey guys, just thought I’d do a very short post. We’ve been running some PPC facebook ads recently and have been getting frustrated with their inability to schedule dayparts (so that ads only show during certain times of the day, etcetera.)

Anyway, after a couple of days of manually starting and stopping the ads (::GROWL::), I decided to get off my butt and see if there were any scripts around that might help. I was lucky enough to find this script and this script at netmischief.com.

Any of you running PPC campaigns on facebook would do well to pick them up. The first is a dayparting script for facebook, MySpace, and Adbrite (requires PHP5 with curl compiled in and access to cron or a similar scheduler) and the second is a Greasemonkey script (requires Firefox) to improve the facebook web interface (which, let’s face it: sucks beyond).

So enjoy! And thanks, Nathan: you rock!
