    I just created an integration between Sitefinity and Facebook using the latest Facebook Graph API and OAuth 2.0. This allows you to merge your existing processes of posting blogs, news, and events with automatically posting to Facebook. Integrating your Sitefinity website to Facebook is now here!

    You can download and try it here:
    http://basememara.com/cms/blogs/view/10-09-21/Sitefinity_Connector_for_Facebook_is_here.aspx

    Features:

    • Post news, events, and blogs from Sitefinity to Facebook simply by checking off a box!
    • Uses the latest, next generation Facebook Graph API
    • Uses the highly secured OAuth 2.0 for authenication (recommended by Facebook)
    • Post to multiple Facebook accounts simultaneously
    • Works with all types of Facebook account types: user, group, and page
    • Adds picture, summary, link, and publication/event start date

     

    Screenshots

    News, events, and blogs will have a new Social Media section where you can select as many Facebook accounts you would like to post to

    Hi Mumtaz,

    You can take a look at facebook comments widget available on marketplace. With Sitefinity 4.3 we are planning to have facebook widget that will serve common features - like, feed etc.

    Kind regards,
