Is there a way that I can have my ning network automatically add my member's facebook pics/prfile pic to their ning profile without aving to upload new pics all over again?
Also, what are the advantages of the @anywhere app?
What exactly does it do? I can't figure it out from the page they have.
This is probably against Facebook TOS (check first), but here's one way to do it. Use Yahoo to import your Facebook contacts. Then add them to your Ning. Then send invites to your network.
Your members profile pics will be automatically imported when they use your Facebook log in.
You can read all about the Twitter @Anywhere application.
Okay, the yahoo thing sounds like it could work, but I van't do it with members that join by themselves without me knowing them.
Thunder X, my ning doesn't do that, it doesn't import any photo's whatsoever, I just logged in with my GF's account through fb and nothing... no pictures nada. also in that accounts settings there are no such options or anything of the sort, it also didn't import my own pics, am I doing something wrong here?
New members using the Facebook/Yahoo!/Google sign up still have to go through the process of answering your profile questions.
Far as Facebook, I never said it would import anything more than a profile pic, Stefan. I believe it only imports the profile pics for new sign ups.
