    Hi there

    I’m wondering, if buddypress is also able to aggregate informations from other social networks like flickr, twitter, facebook, other blogs (wordpress, blogger …) delicious.com and so on.

    There are such concepts ( e.g. noserub.com) that aggreagte (almost) everything from everywhere thorugh RSS or APIs.

    You’ll have to write a plugin for that or modify an existing one.

    Bumping up this question again.

    I need a tool, that makes it possible to do …

    … Groups

    … Friends

    … Aggregation of delicious

    … Aggregation of Twitter

    … Aggregation of Google Reader

    … Aggregation of external blogs

    … Aggregation of other services (rss)

    My question is now: Is it possible to aggreagte content from multiple sources and services through RSS?

    Yeah.. Its possible.. BPDEV use to have a plugin but I think its broken on BP.1.1.2 — I messaged Nicola (the lead evil-genius behind it) and he says that it should be good to go on the release of BP1.2 (currently BP is on BP.1.1.3) — he’ll be working on it on Christmas!

    i found something interresting: LifeStream is a WP-Plugin, but also works with WP MU and buddypress. Now I’m having a look how to integrate LifeStream-plugin into wire/activitystream (they seem to get connected in BP 1.2) … but i think i’ll need some help.

    I just installed BuddyPress Links and It would be interesting to see if it can be hacked together and modified so that it can be an aggregator

    any thoughts dudes?

    @PH (webguy),

    Look into this one built on simplelife…

    Features

    All the features provided with version 1.1 of Simplelife (the point of the fork) and I will also attempt to merge any new future changes as well

    Support for as many and as obscure services as possible. I have already included stuff that no one else does like PMOG, Atheist Nexus, Cocomments, Getboo etc.

    Longer history via utilizing google reader.

    Comment tracking from everywhere. That is, each time you leave a comment in the blogosphere or in a forum, it will show in your lifestream (AFAIK, no other lifestreaming service does this)

    Pie Charts. :)

    Is there anyone who likes to hack LifeStream or Simplelife /Complexlife for BP 1.2?

    A lot of people ask about making BuddyPress Links a feed aggregator, which is kind of confusing to me since there are so many feed aggregator plugins already out there. What are these other plugins missing?

    As far as using it to aggregate activity from other social networks, I think that is not a good idea because links is a content aggregator, specifically of links and rich media, which is a totally different concept from activity. There is a big difference between sharing “stuff” and “actions.”

    @MrMaz

    The other plugins arent designed for BuddyPress. Overall, I think having an life-activity aggregator is something desperately needed for buddypress.

    I agree that conceptually there is a big difference between “stuff” and “actions”

    –nonetheless;

    just simply based on the constant request — it seems like a plugin is needed.

    I feel that maybe the life-stream should hacked or this FYI: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/complexlife

    because it a simple and powerful plugin,and different from the other feed aggregator…

    @MrMaz

    Are there any plans for “tools” for BP Links?

    1) A code snippet for my blogs/post so that I can add it to my template and add a post to my links.. very similar to those “share this” buttons that are ever so popular

    2) A bookmarklet for my browser?

    With out these two tools, it makes it very hard for my users to share.

    Thanks!

    I already have much of the code completed for remote submit and bookmarklet type tools, etc. However, I am probably going to have to release those tools in a pro version and charge for it because so far I have received zero financial support for the plugin despite over 1000 downloads.

    @mrmaz Why not start up premium support by means of a forum? Or perhaps offer more advanced tutorials or docs for paying supporters. Quite a few people have found this to be a successful model, and it doesn’t shut everyone out – reducing overal interest.
