I`m interested about JFB connect and I am going to use it in my website. but I have a question before that. if I use JFB connect and Jom social (or easy social) in my website together , is it possible to add my facebook friends to my jom social friends?
We don't have a way to create automatic connections right now between your existing social network friends and any users that may already be using the site. That's something we're planning to implement in a future release, but it's intentionally made difficult by Facebook and other social networks by limiting and obfuscating data about a user's friends.
There's plenty of other great integration for JomSocial and EasySocial built-in to JFBConnect. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Thanks of your response
Is there any way to show my facebook friends that registered in my website? and also, could I have a page in my website that show my friends activity?
these features are in websites like tripadvisor or goodread and etc.
Those aren't features built into JFBConnect and are more difficult now. With the Facebook Graph API v2.0 release in late April, they changed how getting information about a user's friends works. Now, the following happens:
* A separate permission must be requested of the user to see their friends. Before, this was one of the core permissions that had to be granted.
* The friends list that is returned is *only* the friends who have also approved the same app. Before, all friends of a user were returned.
Because of this, there are quite a few limits on what can be done with a user's friend list, if they give permission to see their friends at all.
Tripadvisor and Goodread are using apps created before April 30th, 2014, which means they can continue to use the older functionality until at least April 30th, 2015. At that time, they will likely have to move to the new, more limited system as well. Of course, they may have special privileges as well.
We had plans before the update in April to add more features for a friends user. Now, we're in investigation and observation mode to determine what is possible and what isn't anymore.
I hope that helps explain. The benefit of using a product like JFBConnect is that we're always keeping up with changes in Facebook and the other social networks so that you don't have to and so that you stay on the right side of their platform policies.
This is officially my dream request. I am subscribed to Invitex, but I much prefer the quality of your products and support. So if you manage to figure out a way to add it, I can guarantee you you will see a huge spike of EasySocial related subscriptions. I would say look at how LinkedIn does their integration, but I assume they have the same priviledge thing you mentioned earlier.
Making automatic connections, or an ability to 'scan' for connections at any point, is something we definitely plan to investigate quite a bit later this year. As noted in our JFBConnect v6.2 Preview Post, we don't have plans to continue adding tons of different authentication providers. We'll be slowing down considerably after this upcoming release with that type of feature. Instead, going forward, we'll be expanding into new features among and enhancing the ones we already have.
Auto-connections between users of up to 10 different social networks will definitely be a great feature, but there's a lot of limitations that need to be worked around for each social network. We'll do what we can though. Some Facebook limitations were mentioned above.. but for something like Twitter, it should be (relatively) easy to check if there is a 2 way relationship between users (they both follow each other) and offer to make that connection. There will just have to be some special mojo for each social network to determine the proper relationships, explain that to both admins and users, and then make it flexible to configure.
Thanks again for the feedback, and as always, if you have any other feedback, let us know.
