On the 'What's on your mind' box in the events view, if you try to submit a status containing an ampersand to Facebook, the rest of the message following the ampersand doesn't get posted. Also, the 'Jolla' link on the resulting status links to https://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=1405690846329546 which does not exist.

Aha, so _that's_ why one of my posts were cut (yep, it had an & in it).

just a note: This is still not fixed.

(posted to Twitter and to Facebook, and Facebook still has the broken "via Jolla" link)

(tried with preceding backslash as well, "just in case it would somehow work as an escape character"

didn't work either
post on Twitter, post on Facebook)

(ping @rainisto (who've seen the "via Jolla" part, over at "Facebook posts 'via Jolla' contain a broken link") / other Sailors)

Also, if twitter has been added to the accounts, while posting to Facebook from the event-screen, whole text turns red after 142 characters.. even if not posting to twitter.
