BuddyPress Facebook

Description

Let your members and groups show their Facebook Button on their profile page and group page.

Using full Facebook URL (www.facebook.com/username), the plugin fetches your members and/or groups username and displays their button in the member’s/group’s header.

If your BuddyPress community is active on Facebook, this plugin is a great tool for boosting communication both on and off your website.
It’s really easy to setup, even if you have an existing community:

Members: Once you ( the site admin ) have set up the members component, all your members have to do is enter in their full Facebook URL and existing members via editing their profile settings.

Groups: Once you ( the site admin ) have set up the groups component, all your group admins have to do is enter in their associated full Facebook URL when they create a group and existing groups via editing their group’s details.

Notes

FAQ

What is the ‘Group Field Title’ for?

The group field title is the title that will be displayed right above the text box where the group will enter in their complete Facebook URL: www.facebook.com/username.

Will the ‘Mirror Profile Field Title’ also be displayed above the text box where the member will enter in their Facebook name.?

No, the text box will use the title you gave your Xprofile field as described in step 6 of the plugin installation instructions. The ‘Mirror Profile Field Title’ is used to fetch the members meta ( attached data ) though if the two differ, no data will be returned thus no button will display.
