Facebook plugin

Version 6

    Facebook Beta Plugin

     

    The Facebook plugin integrates the users' Facebook profiles into Clearspace while allowing each user to control how (or if) their Facebook information is shown. A reduced set of Facebook features is displayed including Profile, Education and Work, Photos, Friends, Groups, and Other information. The user can choose exactly which piece of information is displayed by changing the settings under "Choose Facebook Details". Users can also disconnect their Facebook profile from Clearspace if they no longer want to share it. After installing, each user profile will have a Facebook Profile tab; for those users not participating, the tab will include a message stating that "No Facebook profile information is available for this user".
