Facebook Friends Connect

Is a way to extend external sites to provide: FB identity FB friends (relationship) Feed to FB   Demo app at http://www.somethingtoputhere.com/therunaround User experience: login: js login method requiresession(): detects state of usr-FB relationship, log-in into FB if needed. If user has not authorised app - present app auth dialog. If already has session - just go init JS, require session   access FB data: - FBML on external site - use JS FBML parser and replace in browser DOM with FB data - JS based API to get FB data, REST API on the server site. Sessions work accross any API - only small subset of FBML us supported at the moment   adding social content: - use access API   Connections: app developers can suggest connections (using e-mail hash) user get connect request on FB Move content from external sites to FB app can register feed template (3 types of stories) call JS "showfeeddialog" to request user to confirm data sharing on FB. privacy prote
