Facebook API

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

Facebook now has some open APIs. How about we work together to make a Facebook API module that can be extended for site specific needs, but has a solid base to integrate Facebook and Drupal.

Importing Facebook groups wholesale into Drupal Organic Groups?

I'm wondering if anyone has done any work on importing Facebook groups wholesale into Drupal Organic Groups? I know we can export all the data from a Facebook group using the Facebook API. I guess the main task is to how to map Facebook comments (with revisions?), users, events and pages to a local Drupal instance. I guess make placeholders for these Facebook objects and allow these to be acquired retrospectively? Any ideas? Any projects with similar aims?

Facebook Ads API module?


Some colleagues and I are beginning work on a module to create and manage ads via the Facebook Ads API. I understand that the demand for this module might be small (not everyone advertises on facebook, and facebook requires approval before you get access to the API) but I'm hopeful that anyone else interested in this might benefit from building it and maintaining it together.

We're still very early in the process, but are trying to architect it in a way that our site-specific features are abstracted away from whatever we make for Drupal.org.

Is there a module to show photos on Drupal site that come from Facebook user profile/Facebook page, like Wordpress Fotobook

Wordpress Fotobook plugin will show photos from a user's Facebook profile (assuming the user has set the appropriate permissions for them to be made visible, and that suitable Facebook App settings and id have been setup).

I wondered if there was an equivalent module for Drupal?

How to upload image to currently signed to Facebook user's "Wall photos" album

Recently I had to deal with uploading photos to Facebook user's wall, while working on My Strauss site as Linnovate team developer, it took some time to bring together all pieces of information that I found on web. You can see actual upload on this page for example, (all pages are in Hebrew) - where to click is marked in red on the image below:

Where to click

Hope it will help somebody :)

Integrating multiple Facebook pages into one website

I'm developing a site for a consortium of NGOs. Each has its own set of pages, events, & galleries tagged by an NGO taxonomy. What I hope to achieve is to enable "Like", "Comment" and "Activity Streams" to each NGO's Facebook page/event/gallery depending on where the button was submitted from. How can I do this?

I'm a configurer, not a module developer. Something like Facebook_pull looks good because you put the appID in the code, versus a single appID per website in admin like fb_social. I would need some very user-friendly documentation to help NGOs create apps, though.

Replicating ping.fm functionality

I've used the ping.fm service on a couple of sites to post to specific Facebook pages (not just to the main account's wall). The ping.fm service is spotty at best and I hate to rely on it. In fact, I'm writing this because it's support for posting to FB pages seems to be broken as the result of a FB API change over a month ago.

Anyway, my question is, can someone please lay out a general roadmap for creating a module that allows users to post to specific pages?

Is there a way, using facebook API, to retrieve any historical data about user?

I am looking for a way to retrieve historical data about users using facebook api. such things as which posts user liked in the past, which events user RSVP'd in the past, perhaps even friendship statuses from the past. Have you guys come across something similar? I've spent considerable amount of time yesterday learning facebook graph api as thoroughly as i could and was not able to find any such data. more so, i find that taking all data available via facebook api it will not be possible to reconstruct any historical data.

How about we work together to make a Facebook API module that can be extended for site specific needs, but has a solid base to integrate Facebook and Drupal.

Let's do it.

This module should be divided in (at least) two submodules:

  • Facebook Core API
  • Facebook End User features
  • Facebook Object Mapping
