Includes translations for nearly a dozen front-end languages.
Detailed configuration guides take you step-by-step through all social network integration features available for Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Alex is prompt, polite, patient, thorough and very helpful. I had what turned out to be a very,very specific problem related to virtualisation of IE, and he helped me isolate it very quickly.
And the functionality, well, getting your site playing nicely with Facebook is a very nice feature, good for traffic. And since the API on Facebook changes a lot, you want a product with good support, like this one.
i had some little problems with my configuration but they support me daily and now everything is working fine. (i had a particular customization that's why).
i tryied all components in this category and i can tell you this is the best.
And I received really great support as well (in the Forums.)
I asked for a documentation refresh because of some changes in the Facebook Connect API and the next day I had a reply and a refresh.
Alexander also took time to read through a rather complicated explanation of my needs around URL forwarding/redirecting and gave a thoughtful reply.
I'm sold on this as a solution to my Joomla Facebook needs. To me, it's well worth the cost.

Thank you. We are the most complete solution. The social modules alone can be purchased by multiple other authors for a price that is more than our full solution, and we have many more features. Additionally, you don't have to worry about compatibility issues when you bring multiple Facebook extensions together (which is common), and that's all in addition to our single-sign on capabilities which no other extensions compare to.
If you truly want to grow your site, our price and support is well worth the price. If you're still unsure, read the other reviews from our subscribers to see how others feel about their choice.
The Facebook only login is great and everything integrates easily (Currently using CB 1.2.3 and Kunena 1.6 RC2). Oh and by the way, the support is worth the $50 alone. The forum is not huge, but it does have plenty of answers and this team will typically go into your site and correct the issue rather than only posting possible code fixes (don't get me wrong, I can edit code without issue, but how nice to have it done by its creator within a few hours of the request).
If you are on the fence, checkout the support forum and just look at the consistency of resolution alone from this developer and you will likely see that you are paying very little for so much more than just this great extension.
JFBConnect can get the job done with only a single permission request, with additional requests being optional. And the JFBLogin module is much more flexible than JS's Connect implementation at allowing you to modify its appearance. Bottom-line: if you want Facebook Connect integration for your Joomla site that is flexible, won't scare away people with unnecessary permission requests and which comes with superb support from its developer (thanks, Alzander!), JFBConnect is your answer.
The problem was with JoomSEF default configuration with their new version! I would have never figured it out if it wasn't for these guys.
Must have component for your site. Since my problem with this component, my hit rate dropped by 50%!
Their profile thumbnail weren't cropped when imported which is a pain.
No implementation support for Community Builder which has been around longer and has a larger base than JomSocial.
It cost me twenty bucks and I doubt I'll be using it on my site until these issues are addressed.
The new 2.1 release should address every issue you mention here.
Community Builder support has been added for importing avatar and field data on registration. We know it's been around longer, but unfortunately, it's large codebase made it harder to implement.
The JFBCLogin module has also been updated with a "Redirect on Login" radio button to allow you to let the page refresh on login OR send them to a specific page.
