Build an integration with Steemit using Facebook's JS SDK
- Project length: 3h 28m
We'll look into how to integrate Steem and Facebook APIs / SDKs. First, we'll look at creating a Facebook App, then grabbing info from Facebook. We'll actually try to grab additional information from Facebook other than Pages, but we need to be approved for the login auths required to grab some of the info - and we weren't, given the scope of our App. Suggestions to get approved for your own App are included. To integrate Facebook Pages + Interactions with Steem API, in order to generate revenues via Steem blockchain social rewards! https://www.education-ecosystem.com/h3xadecimal/l9MEW-how-to-build-on-facebooks-js-sdk-and-tying-pages-and-page-interactions To extend this repository, one would apply and get approved for user_photos and user_posts reading on Facebook, then recreate the posts->likes structure that we'd created for Facebook Page's integrations for both a user's photos and their posts.4 We were denied this in our testing as an app that just posts to SteemIt doesn't meet their requirements. What might be fun is taking a UI like SteemIt's UI (maybe) and build it as an overlay for Facebook->SteemIt interactions, then only display our Tags If we do it with a UI, Facebook might approve our App and we can make it bigger, smarter, better!
