facebook node

Post by Vassilis » 29 Oct 2014, 13:00

Hi guys,
I am looking for an Facebook node.

The concept is:
Someone standing in front of an interactive plasma within a retail shop.
Taking a snapshot and sharing his photo via his personal Facebook account.

If you have a solution share it or contact with me.
email: vl@videotooth.gr

Thank you
Vassilis

Hi Vassilis,

for this to work, the user would have to enter his personal login information into the installed machine.

Nobody with a sane mind would do that.

You could however take a snapshot, auto-share that via the retail shop's facebook site, and generate a QR code linking to said shared snapshot.
The user can scan the code with his smartphone and share it via his own facebook app.

This should be possible within a C# script using the facebook API (you might need 3rd party software for QR codes though)
edit: or ditch the QR code genrator and simply put a prerendered QR for the companys facebook page, recent shares will be on top anyway.

Schub is absolutely right. We did a lot of Facebook integration for two years on events with thousands of users. Either the user logs in and/or you have them allow an app to access their profile. But this app might be blackisted quickly if you access different user profiles all the time. It is far better to manage all the data on your account and/or application and give your audience an easy way to access and share them. You could have them enter their email address and have the link sent to them. QR codes are cool for that. Or simply hand out a gimmick with the website address on it. There are a lot of innovative and even fun ways of going about it. Just do not limit yourself to one solution. A lot of people don't care about QR codes or don't know how to use them. So be prepared to provide alternative solutions. Your content will most likely be stored in a database so with the integrated database nodes in Ventuz you will have full access to your content and can easily integrate it into your graphics.

Well that's our experience anyways. Anyone else?

All this things have to be scripted or build on your own.

It would cause way to much effort to maintain these nodes if we would create such nodes since the API's change way to often.

Youtube is a bit special since they have no fixed urls for their videos.. but i will upload a sample that might still work ;)
