Re: BP-FBConnect Plugin

John James Jacoby


@hempsworth, I think the scope of this plugin for right now is really just getting the initial sign-up/login functionality down. Creating a virtual link between facebook and BuddyPress, while a cool idea, is actually quite a task considering the complexity of fbl.

After speaking with Andy last night, part of the problem comes from how Facebook locks down your profile if it’s set to be private (which I’m willing to bet a majority are these days.) If your profile is private, all you get is the facebook user_id, and that’s it.

As far as having the feeds sync up, it would take an active facebook plugin to feed info to both places from both directions. It is a great idea though. I personally wish my Facebook would update my twitter and vice versa.
