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.

My experience with Drupal and Facebook

I'm neither a drupal nor facebook guru, but I have tried my hand at drupal-facebook api integration (5.x mostly 9 months ago so I'm not abreast of new development), and I just wanted to share my experiences as someone only moderately familiar with both platforms. First of all progress on the drupal - facebook integration front seems slow in general and the modules out there don't seem very mature.

How could you use the Plings API to create a great application?

If you had an API which fed in listings of events going on all around the country what would you do with it? And how would you deliver it to the end user? Mash it up with Google Maps? Flickr? Facebook? Twitter?

Has there been any movement on integration with Facebook connect now that it's released?


I think it was released today, so probably not too much :)

Quick question (I hope...)

My apologies if I am missing the obvious but I am just at the beginnings of my quest for an answer.

I am looking for a way to pull events down from a Facebook group to a Drupal site using the news aggregator (or something) on the Drupal side. However, at the Facebook group site there does not seem to be a publicly accessible news feed (rss or atom) url - not that I can find anyway... This doesn't surprise me, they [Facebook] may not want you to pull feeds down unless you're a member of the group or they may only want to restrict you to working with the Facebook UI itself?

Is there any MySpace analog to this group?

MySpace is apparently opening up their platform, creating the possibility for a Facebook-API-type module that lets people sign into Drupal sites with their MySpace account.

Info here: http://developer.myspace.com/Community/blogs/devteam/archive/2008/06/26/...

Is there a Group for MySpace just as there is for Facebook on groups.drupal.org? I searched, and couldn't find anything. Would anyone else here be interested in starting one?

Drupal for Facebook News

Yesterday was Facebook's f8 developers conference here in San Francisco. They presented some great information about the new look (wider canvas pages, wider profile boxes, new feed options) and also Facebook Connect which will change the way Drupal sites share information with Facebook. They held a hackathon and honored several of the projects Facebook's engineers considered the best. And Drupal for Facebook was a winner (specifically, of a Sony PS3)!

Speaking of conferences, I've proposed a session about Facebook App development at the upcoming DrupalCon. It needs votes to make it into the schedule, so if you will attend the DrupalCon, please take a moment to vote for that session.

I'd also like feedback, and more votes, for my grant proposal. This grant could help fund Drupal for Facebook, thereby making it easier to use and up-to-date with Facebook's latest features. If you don't know about the Knight Drupal Initiative, you really should participate. All the proposed grants need review from within the Drupal community before being considered by the Knight Foundation. And if you have ideas that need funding, you really should submit your own proposal.

Facebook Connect

What do you guys think about new API's launched by Facebook last week? It seems like it's going to make dataportability really easy. Here's the announcement on Facebook's site: http://developers.facebook.com/news.php?blog=1&story=108

Are there any drupal apps that enable you to do this already? I know of the Authentication module.

Anyone Else Having Trouble w/Facebook Share Links?

I run a content-based website ( http://www.gradspot.com ) and have included facebook share icons/links at the bottom of each article. However, after clicking on the share icon/link, while I am forwarded to Facebook, it doesn't usually pick up anything from the article (i.e., there's no title, description or thumbnail). Sometimes it doesn't even pick up the link. All that being said, we've even included the meta tags Facebook suggests.

Anyone had this problem before and been able to fix it?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Personalization and message feeds

While Drupal already has many of the tools necessary to implement social networking techniques on a community site, I haven't found anything that works like the personalized central "News Feed" system in Facebook or Twitter.

I'm curious whether anyone has done any development work, planning or merely thinking about how this might be done in Drupal, and about the implications.

Screencast Demo of Drupal for Facebook

At the recent Bay Area Drupal Camp, I presented Drupal for Facebook. I built a small Facebook Application and walked through how I used Drupal to create it. Now the details of this presentation are available in two screencasts.

This is recommended viewing if you're curious what Drupal for Facebook is, or if you've downloaded it and are struggling to set it up. Read more: http://www.dave-cohen.com/node/2246

Toward an Open Social Network Powered by Free Software

Breaking Open Facebook with Open Source Software (Part 2)

it’s important for socially aware software developers to begin thinking about how to provide alternative services to proprietary social networks. While I acknowledge this is a very high level description scarce on implementation details, I hope that it spurs some spirited discussions and future innovation.

am looking for a drupal developer to work on social networking project centered on geo-spatial and interest data. I broke-down the project in several phases, phases 1 being very basic. So if you agree with this approach and you are an expert with drupal, php, google map's api, the gmap module, the categories module (CCK) and how it can apply to profiles, please do read on. Lastly, it would help tremendously if you would share with me any implementation examples similar to the specs below.

So here's a preview of the high-level functionality I need developed/implemented for Phase 1:
