share Jomsocial posts with Twitter and Facebook

share Jomsocial posts with Twitter and Facebook

Hi,

We are using Joomla with Jomsocial and JFBC. JFBC is working fine connecting with facebook and Twitter credentials.

Another thing we want is to share posts with Facebook and Twitter. Users can create posts in the activitiystream of JomSocial. We want to give the users the option to share their individual posts also on their facebook or Twitter account.

I don't see how I cant manage that.

Can you help me?

Re: share Jomsocial posts with Twitter and Facebook

We don't have a way to do that to Twitter or other social networks yet, though it's planned. For Facebook, if you enable the "Push status to social networks" setting in the JFBConnect -> Profiles -> JomSocial configuration area, then posts from users that are marked as "Public" will be posted to Facebook if they've connected their account to Facebook.

I hope that helps answer your question, but if you need anything else, just let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your answer. I had to activate the jomsocial profile plugin. I did not notice this part of JFBC yet. It is not working yet but I look in to it.

Another question: When a user want to decide if a post in jomsocial is posted to Facebook, he can only manipulate this by making the post not public?

Cheers,
RJ

Re: share Jomsocial posts with Twitter and Facebook

Glad to hear the advice above helped to get you going in the right direction.

As for posting to Facebook, yes, if they make the post public, it will go to Facebook as well (if you have it configured that way in JFBConnect). If the post is public, it means that search engines and other things will be able to scan and see it already, so pushing it to Facebook generally isn't a problem. It's up to you, as the admin, to determine if your users posts would be relevant to a more general audience in Facebook.

I hope that helps answer your questions,
Alex

I turned that setting on but now see "Submit for Login Review   Some of the permissions below have not been approved for use by Facebook. Submit for review now or learn more. " ?

Re: share Jomsocial posts with Twitter and Facebook

The publish_actions permission does require review by Facebook. If you want to be able to post on user's behalf, Facebook wants to verify that you're not doing anything nefarious, like automatically posting content that they didn't actually push to your site. JFBConnect fulfills all requirements of the features we use, but there is the extra step of review for some of our features.

The review process is relatively new (started earlier this year) and there's nothing we can do to get around the review requirement for some features.

I hope that helps answer your question,
Alex
