Cool little Objective-C Method for grouping Facebook likes


Firstly, I just want to say I’m pretty proud of myself for writing compilable code at 4:30am. Go me.

I am making an iOS app as part of my 4th year design project, and we are leveraging Facebook for it. Basically, our app allows you to take a picture of someone’s face and we use facial recognition to pull up their Facebook profile.

Anyway, I was fooling around with the Facebook iOS SDK and one of the things I’ve been wanting to do is to group one’s likes by category. Facebook seems to just return a large array of likes, with no grouping. This little method below groups them so I can have a table view with headings like “Favorite Books”, “Favorite Movies”, etc. Check it out.
