  • Prefer an automatic registration where the user sees no forms and is just logged in? JFBConnect has you covered.
  • Are you using multiple profile types? With JFBConnect, you can assign social network users to a specific one or even let them select it during registration
  • Want to control how the user's social profile is imported? No problem. Just select which fields from each configured social network should be imported into your JomSocial profile.
