Number One most Desirable Feature of this Add-In

The ability to sync the user activity feed with their facebook wall.  That is, if they post a new thread, in their facebook wall you get "Username has posted <a href="http://URL">Check out this awesomeness</a> in the Possibility Space Forums".  I am going to take your source code and see if I can make this work... if I can I will post the augmentation here.

There are two options that I see here.

  1. Create a CS Job that reads the activity feed items and pushes them to Facebook.
  2. Hook into the same events as CS does (using a CSModule) to create our own actions which publish to the activity feed.

The first is fine if we know we want everything (and only) what is in the activity feed to go to Facebook. The second option give us more flexibility, at the cost of a bit more work. In this case I think that the work is worth it. It makes sense to start just by creating status updates when a new thread is created in the forums. Once that is working, we can move on to other types of activities.

yeah I agree... the second option seems better.  My .NET skills are negligable but I will do what I can.  I'm looking forward to working on this.

I also noticed that there was NOTHING about this in the Community Server community.  Your project is buried in the web, so im spreading the word in an attempt to get more people on it.

I am having difficulty getting this to work at all. Is there anything I can do to motivate the development of this feature?
