  • Still no facebook addon developped?
  • So has this idea been dumped? Is it because it's impossible to make such a plugin or has no one really tried?

  • as the world of tech and web application changes and develops so fast, ive found a new project that is promising and interesting as far as facebook connect and authentication methods are concerned. Diaspora

    http://www.joindiaspora.com

    Its opensource, privacy aware, and supports and promotes interoperability. It allows you, if you want to publish information to other social networking frameworks like facebook, so on and so forth. Its interesting to look into. Though facebook may be the leading social networking site at the moment, its important to realize others will come around and challenge its existence, this is the nature of tech. If we, as a community are going to implement any new form of user authentication, then we should do it with the communities best interest. Opensource, and control over our own privacy and information. I like openID. I for one dont trust facebook.

    But remember, OpenID sucks and is the devil's handiwork. Just sayin'.
