What is the Facebook Integration Project?
More and more often, every virtual entity also has a Facebook page (companies, communities, bands, etc.). Facebook pages are very limited and people also need another website (for example, one built in Liferay) but then you have some staff in your website, some staff in Liferay...and your users may not know where to go. This project looks to provide the mechanisms to make Liferay integration with a Facebook page easier.
Initially, this project will contain some plugins (portlets) for having Facebook social apps (comments, "like" boxes, etc.). Some developments to come:
- Integration of the openGraph protocol
- Integration of Facebook comments on top of Liferay comments
- Automatic integration of sites with Facebook pages
This project will benefit site administrators who maintain a website built in Liferay and a Facebook page linked to that website. It will also benefit end users since they will be able to interact with their website from either Facebook or Liferay.
