We all know that our Luminis implementation can't compete with the popularity of Facebook. If you can't beat them, might as well leverage their data!
Facebook has a new API that allows developers to create channels that use a Luminis user's Facebook data.
It uses a REST-based interface that returns XML or JSON. They offer Java and PHP5 libraries.
Here are some possibilities that I envision...
- Facebook Group Activity
- New Messages
- New Event Invites
- New Friend Requests
- News Feed
- Personalizing Luminis with a user's Facebook photo
Actually I can think of many more uses, but I think you get the idea.
I'm itching to start developing myself, but alas... the suits have me working on other high priority projects. So instead, I'm going to develop vicariously through you peeps. So get developing!
