Socialize and interact better with JFBConnect for EasySocial

Socialize and interact better with JFBConnect for EasySocial

It is our great pleasure to share with you that JFBConnect is now integrated with EasySocial! JFBConnect allows community managers using EasySocial customize the way new members interact in your online community.

JFBConnect basically enables you to sign-in to your Joomla site with your own profile from Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social networks. Additionally, you can create 'actions' that will automatically post to a user's Timeline when they interact with your site, like reading, commenting, or voting on an EasyBlog post, and more.

This generates curiousity and your friends will check out what community you've joined and may possibly join in as well. In other words, you are tapping on the power of mainstream social networks to direct traffic and increase member signups to your community powered by EasySocial. 

The JFBConnect-EasySocial combo particularly works on the profiles integration that essentially give the user easier access without that lenghty registration process. It gives full control of the registration process by automatically importing user data or pre-filling it so that the user can edit and update as needed, allowing for a smooth and fast registration experience.

This integration gives the community manager various options for the desired registration flow, all with just a few clicks of the buttons in the backend settings.

I don't want to bore you with more text, watch this video from SourceCoast, the creator of JFBConnect that now integrates with EasySocial.

 In summary, this integration helps you in the following ways:

  • Easier member signups and logging in - grows your community FASTER
  • Bring more traffic from your social profiles elsewhere to your EasySocial community
  • Increase member loyalty and participation

P/S: This promo is only valid from 6th till 9th December 2013 at 2359 hours (UTC+8)

Does JBFConnect also integrate with the EasySocial Toolbar Module? We use this as our main login / registration method.

I'm just saying .... but $60 for an extension that you sort of expect would be standard features is a bit much and it's not nice to be reading that you need this extension for easier sign ups and logging in - surely that should be something that IS standard with the main extension and if it isn't, it's something you're striving for

Absolutly agree with damodamo.
In fact I thought this kind of features are included in the EasySocial core or you can install a pluging for free. I remember that other social extensions at least have facebook integration out of the box. Just purchased EasySocial.... lets try. But by the moment I can't afford 60$ more just for the loggin process.

Hey guys,

EasySocial does already offer Facebook logins by default However, some users does prefer to integrate JFBConnect throughout the site and to our surprise, there's actually quite a number of users that are actually looking forward for the integrations.

Mark:
Your response makes no sense to me. If we can already use Facebook for logging in, then what is it that JFBConnect is offering for $60 that is NOT included with EasySocial? What is it that JFBConnect is doing that EasySocial currently is NOT doing? Excited, no. Confused, yes! Everything in that short video looks like it should just be part of EasySocial without any additional cash outlay. $60 bucks for what is displayed seems quite overpriced? Please enlighten me as to what I am...

Please enlighten me as to what I am missing. You mention many EasySocial users that are excited with the integration, well they must “get it” and I am still left wondering what it is that they are offering that is better and greater. Thanks again for your patience with my confusion with this announcement.

Hello Michael,

EasySocial's Facebook connect authentication currently allows users to login with their Facebook account and allow them to import their profile over. As to what difference it makes, it's more of a centralized solution because most site owners that already have JFBConnect are already comfortable with it. JFBConnect also comes with an enhanced support with opengraph objects too. It also has built in Facebook invitation tool as well and it integrates well with the points system in EasySocial

That makes sense. So really this is a major announcement for JFBConnect users as they are now that much more tightly integrated with the Stack Ideas product line, thus enhancing their value to their existing users. Thanks for your explanation. I will have to take a closer look at JFBConnect.

perhaps in addition to the pro's mark already mentioned jfbconnect also comes with google+ and twitter login, linkedin following soon. but detached from the main features I think using a global system makes sense in a different way:
when easysocial (or any other extension) is the only extension you have on your site then the built-in option is fine. but what when you're using 5 or 6 other extensions, perhaps from other devs, that also provide login options. should we tell every dev now to...

I think in all these cases it makes much more sense to have one global system that handles this while the extensions itself can focus on their main job

I have a question about JFBConnect, since I have used this component before with Jomsocial. What it really does is just use social site authentication integration, if a user choose to login using FB, Twitter, or Google+ it will simply create a user in Joomla and Jomsocial and EasySocial. BUT the sad thing is - talking with my experience with Jomsocial before they integrate JFB within their code, is that it does not really integrate, it does not DO what the integrated Facebook authentication...

I have a question about JFBConnect, since I have used this component before with Jomsocial. What it really does is just use social site authentication integration, if a user choose to login using FB, Twitter, or Google+ it will simply create a user in Joomla and Jomsocial and EasySocial. BUT the sad thing is - talking with my experience with Jomsocial before they integrate JFB within their code, is that it does not really integrate, it does not DO what the integrated Facebook authentication feature does.

Here's my question, does JFBConnect really integrate with EasySocial like the default Facebook feature? Where if the user choose to login using Facebook, EasySocial will ask that the Account with that email already exists and would you like to merge the account - if I remember it right. I tested EasySocial once during the beta and that feature is so cool and avoids user confusion. Does JFBConnect does that? Or JFBConnect will simply create the user and simply enable users to use social site authentication? If it does then it's kinda close to useless sorry that is just my opinion but JFBConnect might be useful for people who really wants multiple platform authentication and wants to spend $60 more - is it $60?

@lacinfosys I haven't used the built-in fb login function of easysocial but for your question about jfbconnect: yes, when a user with the same email address already exists then jfbc will not add a new profile but merge them together, as you can also see in the video

@alex thanks for the info, that's interesting maybe I should spend time with the latest version and test it out and maybe they improved it a lot this time have you checked if JFBConnect is loading its own JQuery and Bootstrap Library? I hope it can be turned off and still work with EasySocial to speed up loading

Hey all! Alex from SourceCoast here. I'll try to answer what I can, and will gladly field any other questions you may have.

In short, EasySocial is a great 'on-site' social network tool. If you want to create a community on your site, you can't go wrong with EasySocial. There is some basic Facebook integration and other features, but they are meant specifically for EasySocial and social network integration isn't really StackIdeas focus.

Hey all! Alex from SourceCoast here. I'll try to answer what I can, and will gladly field any other questions you may have.

In short, EasySocial is a great 'on-site' social network tool. If you want to create a community on your site, you can't go wrong with EasySocial. There is some basic Facebook integration and other features, but they are meant specifically for EasySocial and social network integration isn't really StackIdeas focus.

JFBConnect *is not* a profile extension, we don't allow groups, or uploading photos, or plenty of other things. What JFBConnect does do is help you integrate different social networks into your Joomla site by tying into EasySocial, EasyBlog, K2, Joomla content, Virtuemart, and lots of other extensions.

For registration, there's a ton of flexibility over the process. You can enable 1-click registration where the account is automatically created. To @LAC's point, if a user already exists with the same email address, their accounts will automatically be linked. There's also a registration flow option where the user can step through the EasyRegistration flow with their profile information already filled out (or hidden altogether), making the process much simpler. You (the admin) can control what information is imported from social networks into EasySocial... and, lets say you have Virtuemart, you can import their city, state and interests into there as well, so that you can improve their checkout experience. Just one example of many.

Beyond that, we offer Open Graph Actions (the only Joomla extension to do so). With that, you can create an 'action' which automatically posts to a users Facebook Timeline when they perform that activity on your site. For example, when a user comments, votes on or even reads an EasyBlog post, it automatically posts to their Timeline. No extra "Share this on Facebook" buttons, just organic posting. Those features work, again, outside of just EasySocial for K2, Joomla content, jReviews and lots of other system. The Open Graph tags in general will also be set across your site so that when a user Like's or shares your content, you can be assured you have the best title, description and image selected to represent your content.. instead of letting Facebook randomly choose what it thinks is best.

Additionally, there are even more social network integration features like Page Tab integration, Facebook invitations/requests, social sharing buttons (FB Like, FB Share, G+1, Twitter Share, Pinterest and LinkedIn Share) that can be added automatically to your content, and every social widget from the networks we support in module form for easy use anywhere on your site.

JFBConnect isn't for everyone. It depends on how you want to organically grow your site and streamline social networking for your users. And, for now, you can get it for 20% off with the coupon above, which brings it to under $50. We also, always, provide a 30% discount to all users that are renewing their subscriptions.. meaning you'd never pay more than $50.

I hope that helps clarify, but let me know if you have any other questions!

P.S. @LAC We do require jQuery and Bootstrap. There is an easy option to enable/disable it, though. If enabled, we include a specialized version that won't conflict with other loads, and guarantee things go smoothly. If you already have that setup though, you don't need our special copy.

We purchased the product and had pretty good luck installing but the first thing we found that didn't work were told within weeks of having the product just wait and see if it fixes itself. How many folks out there have seen non functioning apps or components fix themselves without anything being done? Exactly! We still have the same problems and are paying people out of our own pocket to help support the product because the company thinks their software is self repairing I guess. What a...

Wish we had never bought!
