A Connect with Facebook button is displayed on a selected module position, where users can easily Login or Register by click on it. After registration they are automatically logged in! Next time they visit your site, they can either click Facebook connect button or use temp password/username already sent in their email.
* Implements new Facebook OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization
* Auto Registration with valid email and facebook name
* Option to show only login button or Full login form

I hope in your next project update, you add a functionality to integrate Facebook data with Jomsocial, K2, and Community Builder! Thanks.
But then I got to this one and it was unbelievable. It worked from the first installation onwards. I even didn't need to contact support. It's recommendable to everyone who wants to have a nice backend administration and a stunning frontend experience.
Keep going. Great Work!
Thank you Sir
Thank you for your support, people like you keeps us going.
I have a suggestion,
* When user gets authenticated from fb and record is save in local users table then there must be save a temporaray password for joomla login and password should be emailed to the user..
I hope developer will consider it.
Unfortunately, the module’s HTML is really messed up and it doesn't work with the Bright Book template. I couldn't fix it in about 2 hours trying, so I finally decided to uninstall the component and the module :(.
Unfortunataly I found that, once logged in, a log out button is needed, and maybe some info. When a user is logged in, only his picture is displayed, nothing more, not even his name. Hopefully that will be added in the future.
Also has a nice backend to check out which users logged in, and you can even get their emails and basic info for several stuff.
I'll be looking forward for more development on this one!
Maybe a checkbox to select if the component should auto publish to the users facebook profile? or maybe a checkbox to allow the user to choose this?
I'm not complaining at all! This is such a great component! Only suggesting! Keep it up!
In addition, I've created 'xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#"'-files containing certain FB plugins, which are embedded in wrapper modules ... guess a lot more could be done.
