There should be a way to share/give an add-on to a specific friend. I attempted to do this via message and wall post attachments, but due to 2 bugs with FBML, the feature can't be added yet. Currently waiting on those 2 bugs to be fixed on Facebook's side: 1) <select> fields are not passed along to the hidden url 2) <fb:name uid="profileowner" /> does not work from the wall post attachment box (if the first bug was fixed, we could work around this)
TM -> 0.5 If Facebook isn't fixing this bug, we'll find a workaround and it will be unpleasant!
This bug still exists, but in addition to the message/wall post attachment method, I am considering something similar to the invite tool where someone can select a bunch of friends to send an add-on request/invitation to.
After further consideration, I'm not going to try to find a way around the Facebook bug. Moving to TM:Future and when the bug is fixed it can be re-assessed for the current milestone at the time. http://bugs.developers.facebook.com/show_bug.cgi?id=69
The Facebook bug was finally fixed, and this functionality is now ready to be turned on in production after some minor code changes that are visible on staging now. Stephen: the two points to test are in writing a message and writing a wall post.
OK; I've tested and verified both as working on the staging instance; sorry for the delay! I've flagged as needing in-litmus, and will get around to it and the other bug in a few days (but that shouldn't hold us from shipping 0.6).
