    Earlier this week Facebook made a series of product announcements at its annual developer conference, f8. In addition to outlining future product direction and strategy, Facebook announced that it would be discontinuing the Facebook Connect brand and adopting OAuth2.0 and Open Graph.

    I don’t know how this is going to play out but it seems all those promising Facebook plugins are going to have to be rethought.:

    Anyone out there have a GeoCities plugin? :P

    that is depressing since I am a complete die hard fan of simple facebook connect – http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ I hope it doesn’t die out. Let’s just see how it all plays out in the future devs. Thanks for the heads up

    Hi Shanni,
    I’m also a fan of Simple Facebook Connect, and the author of this plugin seems pretty active to implement the new features by Facebook. So I would not worry that much about the future of this plugin: it seems to me the best plugin to connect a WordPress blog with Facebook.
    But I wonder: does he work smoothly with BuddyPress? I mean: can users register on BuddyPress using Facebook Connect?
    Thanks,
    Nicolas
