Love it, hate it, or mildly tolerate it, you cannot dismiss Facebook's enormous success. Even in markets where it does not dominate the social web, Facebook is catching up and will likely succeed. In other places, it is easy to forget that there was Internet before Facebook.
Many of us have existing websites where we are posting content and notifications already. So how do you merge your existing processes of posting blogs, news, and events with automatically posting to Facebook? Integrating your Sitefinity website to Facebook is now here!
The new Sitefinity Connector integrates your website to Facebook via the next generation of Graph API and OAuth 2.0 protocol.
- 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
- Adds picture, summary, link, and publication/event start date
- Uses the FacebookSharp library
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.
Using OAuth 2.0 standards, the sign on procedure will take you directly to Facebook for authentication.
The Sitefinity Connector will request your permission to perform the tasks needed to post your news, events, and blogs as Facebook app.
A successful login and granting of permissions will pass back a secure Facebook token to allow Sitefinity to post to Facebook
Closing the window will update your Sitefinity posting page.
Upon creation of your post, the Facebook posted to will be listed for your reference.
A successul post from Sitefinity to Facebook... a beautiful sight indeed!
Do not forget, it is also posted onto your website with the same click :)
