With about 2 hours learning and coding tonight, I finally enabled Facebook Connect on this blog. You may have noticed the Facebook Connect login button at the comment section of this page. That is it.
You can click on the button. If you have a Facebook account, you can simply click OK to login this site, and then you will see your photo, and your name, email, url information auto filled. Then you can comment with that information.
This is just the very simple first step about integration, and in the future, I will add more features, for example:
- Post your comment automatically back to your Facebook profile page as News Feed.
- See who esle you know are on this site
- Share the page with your Facebook friends more easily
The possibility is unlimited. After trying both Google Friend Connect and Facebook Connect, I have to say, I gave rating 90 out of 100 for Facebook Connect, and 10 out of 100 for Google Friend Connect. The 10 points Facebook loses is because it is not easy to implement it, and the 10 points Google gets is only because it is simple to add, but basically useless.
If you want to know how I did it, you can check out this page: Facebook Connect with MovableType.
Hope to see you sigin and comment soon.
