Facebook recently began sending notices to many users of JFBConnect, the Facebook integration suite for Joomla, notifying them of upcoming changes to the Facebook platform. This email, referencing the "July 2013 Breaking Changes", contains some information on Facebook integration features that your site may use. 

Please rest assured that the current releases of JFBConnect fully supports the upcoming changes. In almost all cases, you should experience no altered behavior, but there are a few things to watch depending on how you may have implemented your Facebook Like buttons or Facebook Comment boxes in Joomla.

Read on for more details about the update, and how you should be already prepared just by using JFBConnect.

We're very excited to announce a new SCLogin module freely available to any users of Joomla 3.1, Joomla 3.0 and Joomla 2.5. This module is based off the Joomla 3.x login module, with improvements like a horizontal mode, streamlined looks, and a modal popup view for login and registration. Additionally, the new module seamlessly integrates with JFBConnect for Joomla Facebook integration or JLinked for LinkedIn integration with Joomla, letting you easily let users login using 2 of the most popular social networks in a slick looking login module.

JFBConnect LogoThe newest release of JFBConnect, v5.0, is available now. This release of the most popular Facebook for Joomla integration extension has been vastly improved with new features, faster load times, and sets the foundation for adding Twitter and Google+ authentication and integration over the next few releases. 

After more than 5 years of development, JFBConnect has constantly been improved with new features, such as Open Graph Actions, Facebook Requests, and constantly changing and updated social widgets from Facebook. This new release focuses more on the roots of what made, and has kept us so popular over all this time: profile integration, excellent Joomla support and an eye on the ever-evolving Facebook capabilities.

Read on to learn more about this new release, and the future of JFBConnect.

Facebook Joomla 1.5After more than a month of waiting on the premiere Joomla Facebook extension, Joomla 1.5 administrators can now add Facebook Open Graph Actions to their websites.

This new Joomla 1.5 compatible release follows our extremely successful launch of Facebook's Open Graph Action integration for Joomla 2.5 in late November. With the new JFBConnect v4.3 release for Joomla 1.5 Facebook integration, you'll be able to register and log users in with their Facebook accounts, automatically post 'actions' to their Facebook Timeline as they read your content or otherwise interact with your site, let your users send invitations for your site, integrate Joomla with your Facebook Page, and so much more.
