JV-LinkDirectory 4.8 Dev Update: Facebook Widgets Integration

We are adding yet another social networking feature in JV-LD 4.8 – The Facebook Widget Integration with link detail and link category pages in JV-LinkDirectory. Facebook provides several widgets of which, Comments Box and Like/Recommend widgets will be integrated with JV-LD.

Comments Box Widget:

Facebook Comments Box is a social plugin that enables user commenting on your directory. Features include moderation tools and distribution. Comments are ordered to show users the most relevant comments from friends, friends of friends, and the most liked or active discussion threads, while comments marked as spam are hidden from view. Comments are easily shared with friends or with people who like your Page on Facebook.

If a user leaves the “Post to Facebook” box checked when he/she posts a comment, a story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site. Friends and people who like the Page can then respond to the discussion by liking or replying to the comment directly in the News Feed on Facebook or in the Comments Box on your site. Threads stay synced across Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site regardless of where the comment was made.

Like/Recommend Button Widget:

The Like button lets a user share your content with friends on Facebook. When the user clicks the Like button on your site, a story appears in the user's friends' News Feed with a link back to your website.

JV-LD 4.8 will provide integrations for these two widgets into link category and link detail pages. Number of posts/comments, width of the widget and color scheme are configurable at JV-LD back-end

Hope you like this feature integration…
