    • FB connect 5 things you wish you’d known before you started Toby Beresford Facebook Developer Garage London 11 Feb 2009 With a bit of help from LOLCATS
    • What is it
      • Simple: With a single sign-on process, users can easily log in to your site and Facebook using the same account.
      • Social: Integrate your users' Facebook social graphs with their social graphs on your site to provide better content with a social context.
      • Seamless: Publish the actions users take on your site on Facebook.
      • Synchronized: Keep your users' personal and friend data in sync with Facebook.
    • Making it work
      • There’s loads of info on the Facebook Developers Wiki
      • There are lots of plugins already Joomla, Wiki, Wordpress, Vbulletin
