Facebook Integration?

    Are there any reliable Facebook integration components that work with WPMU and BuddyPress? Currently, the lack of FB integration is a dealbreaker for me. I’m setting up some niche social networks, and my research has shown that I will be a lot more successful if I integrate with FB. In surveys and focus groups, most people said they already spend too much time on FB, and they would not consider joining another social network unless it integrated smoothly with FB (so they could streamline things and not have to jump around).

    Other social networking platforms have good FB integration, especially Drupal, which enables you to publish your Drupal site as an FB app. Elgg also has some good good FB plug-ins. Ironically, WordPress also has good FB integration, but those components don’t seem to work with WPMU and/or BuddyPress (unless I’m mistaken about some of them).

    I’ll be starting to build my site next week, and I’d love to do it with WPMU/BuddyPress. But, without great FB integration, I can’t. My business partners won’t allow it, and I agree with them.

    Hopefully I’m wrong and there are Facebook components that will work in WPMU/BuddyPress. If someone can point me to any such things, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I would be interested in that as welll! It is crucial for me, that it works with facebook (I just started with BP and thought, the plugins will come…). BUT, maybe their exists some stuff already :-) !

    Thanks for all the ideas and answers…

    Unfortunately I’m not a coder so I don’t know how to make that one work with WPMU. It would be great if someone did that. I just wish there was something that existed now. I’d rather use BP for the site(s) I’m doing, but so far I think Drupal has the best FB integration by far. I’m just not a big fan of Drupal in general. I know it’s very powerful, but I totally prefer using WP to build sites.

    Esta integración es buenísima, por favor envíen novedades. Idem opensocial para integrar otras redes.

    Felicitaciones… y suerte !
