Tao Shang and Rui Qi Shi have contributed
a new project - OpenSocial
Gadget for Facebook in EE.
They describe the functionality of this
gadget in the IBM Connections wiki.
The gadget assumes that Facebook entries
have been pushed into the IBM Connections activity stream. When users then
click on these entries the Embedded Experience shows more information for
the particular entry which is read from Facebook.
Technically the sample shows how to
use the Facebook REST APIs and OAuth from OpenSocial gadgets using the
built in OAuth support from the OpenSocial container via gadgets.io.makeRequest.
