[UPDATE - 3/7/10]
Becausethis discussion has become quite long, we're seeing the same questions
being asked again. To avoid confusion and save Ning staff and Network
Creators from answering duplicate questions, we're closing this
discussion and have compiled a list of answers to some of the most
popular questions in this discussion.  If you're reporting an issue about your Facebook App on your Ning Network, it's best to start a ticket through our Help Center so that we can quickly troubleshoot and get to the bottom of the issue for you.

Ready to integrate your Ning Network with Facebook? We’re putting the finishing touches on our Facebook App. It’s designed to help your members introduce their Facebook friends to your Ning Network.

We’re always interested in giving Network Creators the tools they need to grow their Ning Networks as seamlessly and organically as possible. Early last month, we launched Twitter integration, and in the following weeks saw powerful growth in many Ning Networks as Network Creators and their members started sharing content with their Twitter followers. We think our Facebook integration will be just as powerful, if not more so.

When the release goes live, you’ll see Facebook links on your content’s detail pages, right next to the Twitter links. Even better, you’ll find a brand-new Manage Facebook page, where you can quickly create a Facebook App for your Ning Network. Creating a Facebook App is not only easy, but it gives your members a way to post content directly to Facebook. It also gives you control over how those posts look on Facebook and identifies the content as being directly from your Ning Network.

Here’s a sample of how an event looks when shared on Facebook, once the Facebook App has been set up and customized:

facebook-small

Once you’ve created the Facebook App, your App will essentially serve as a Fan page on Facebook as well. So people who see posts in their News Feed from your Facebook App will be able to become fans of your Ning Network — and you’ll have another way to point people back to your Ning Network.

Creating the App will also add Facebook checkboxes to members’ Status modules and in key places where they add content. In this initial release of the app, members won’t be able to sign up or sign in via Facebook, but that’s something we’re actively working on adding down the road.

Ready to unveil your Ning Network to the 400 million people who use Facebook? We are scheduling to launch Facebook Integration next week and we’ll update you here when the new Facebook app is ready to be installed.

  • Is NING going to launch it during the weekend? I am thrilled waiting for this apps. Thanks indeed.
    • Hi Allan!

      I'm thrilled about Facebook integration as well! Releases are launched during the weekdays to ensure that they go smoothly and that we have the full staffing for them. We'll definitely keep you posted next week when this is live on your Ning Network. Thanks!
  • This is great news!
  • Great news! What if we already have a fan page for our network - can we integrate the app with that?
    • I want to know this too
    • Hey Chris!

      It’s a great question — what do you do if you already have a Fan page? I’ve posed the question to Facebook, but they haven’t gotten back to me. I’d encourage you to try to contact them as well, but we’ll see if we can work anything out with them on our end.

      • Any news on this yet? It's a great app, but to have it connect with a Fan page would be even better.

  • I have private networks and just took off the share links. Will there be an option to not have this share feature?
