Any idea on what would be the easiest way to integrate BuddyPress with Facebook?

I'm looking for a solution that would enable a BP custom profile that easily gets pre-filled with values from Facebook after the user does a "Connect with Facebook". Some way of mapping FB graph objects to BP profile.

If it's not available I will probably start the work on creating one so if you have any ideas or tips then that would also be useful.

The short answer is: kinda?

To sync wall activities: http://buddystream.net/

To use Facebook Connect for logging in: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-fbconnect/

  • That said, I'm quite curious as to what you come up with. It doesn't appear there are any real good ways of doing what you want yet.

Have you look at this amazing premium "BuddyPress Facebook Connect+" plugin from BuddyDev?

Basic Features:-

  • It allows seamless login/registration on BuddyPress site using Facebook as the authentication source
  • It works with WordPress Multisite as well as WordPress Standard, with BuddyPress enabled.
  • It allows Importing users Facebook data to BuddyPress profile
  • Site Administrators Can map Facebook profile fields to BuddyPress profile fields
  • Completely localized (not just BuddyPress, but also the Facebook connect sections are localized)
  • It uses new Facebook api, so obviously It is very lightweight
  • Are you affiliated with this?
