Anyone that's familiar with Facebook's wonderful (sigh) liberality in what they'll accept in those fields knows that it's up to the Facebook user to determine how to separate their keywords. I've seen some doozies (what is with people, eh?) but I've run into a problem with Facebook.NET when someone chooses to use line breaks as a delimiter. It removes the escaping backslash, leaving only the more-maddening 'n' character as a separator. Confound it, some of my users actually want to use 'n' in their TV shows, music, etc.

So I started up an issue ("JsonReader doesn't handle control characters in JSON values correctly.") and because I'm just that kind of guy I fixed the issue as well. If anyone's having that problem, it just takes a switch out of Framework.Service.Core.JsonReader.cs with the one I've attached to that work item. It's not much but it's one less thing that Nikhil won't have to troubleshoot.
