WP-FBConnect = Game On.

I was browsing my Google reader and found an update to my Facebook Developer wiki RSS…and what do you know – they have updated the page.

We have the ability to “WP-FacebookConnect adds Facebook functionality to WordPress using the Facebook Connect APIs. It provides single-signon, avatars, and newsfeed publication of comments. “

I was really pushing the WordPress developed BuddyPress – which is an add on for WordPress Multi-User, but I’mbecoming more conviced each day that FacebookConnect (or FriendConnect by Google) is a better way to go.  It seems like these are well established social networks which will server as great leverage for the killer platform, WordPress.

Let me know what you hear.

  1. I think you are right. It also gives the user a seemless travel between a more popular established site to another one that caters to it.

    Also, those few precious seconds where people give up wanting to post their information for a new account, can now just use one they are already using.

    Good post. Totally agree. Now, I am trying to get this to work for wpmu:(

  2. Yes – let me know if you do. We’re jumping on the MU boat at my work too. We’ll be looking to figure it out as well!
