The component is very easy to use once you get past the setup, which is kind of technical (or maybe i was just a little anxious) and it has worked flawlessly. What questions/bumps I have had were quickly answered by their Alex's amazing technical/customer service. The component really has been an answer to prayer.
The only word of caution I would offer is that buyers need to beware they will have to shell out a few more dollars to get full functionality. THIS IS A FACEBOOK THINK, NOT JFBCONNECT. Facebook has now made secured hosting a requirement to develop an app (which is one of the steps for setup)
JFBConnect does link you to a low-cost option, which is great if that's applicable. But for some, this could be a more than $100 additional purchase. This is Facebook rules, and has nothing to do with JFBConnect, but if you think you'll buy the component and be on your way, think again. Regardless of the extra expense, I would still say its well worth it!
JFBConnect is robust and stable, and adds far more Facebook integration features than just the login and friend invitation that I was looking for. The extension has a very professional design and is thoroughly documented, which is something I've found lacking in the majority of other Joomla extensions.
The developer is very responsive and often goes way beyond standard support scope, even to the point of offering code hacks to implement non-standard features and tweaks.
I'm more pleased with JFBConnect than with any other Joomla extension I've purchased. The subscription price was money well spent.
Also, I have to say, the canvas tab page portion of the component is spectacular. If you know html and css--you can go really far with what options this handy component allow you within the context of your Facebook fan page. As a designer it allows me to market a new service to our clientele which is exciting.
All that is great, but what about support? The support is really the reason why I am leaving the review. I have used many extensions in my time as a Joomla users, but as we all know--support is really what defines our experience. I am glad to say the support from Alexander at SourceCoast is superb.
So, two thumbs up, five stars, A++++ JFBConnect rocks.
Tech support was awesome and the best part of the whole experience was: We asked for our refund under their 30 day Money Back Guarantee and it was processed within 2 days.
We will certainly look at other components from this company and if the need arises, use this one again.
I came across a small road block and found the support to be that which we all wish our ISPs and Utilities offered, it was really fast, really friendly and resulted in a quick road to set up success.
I highly recommend this product for anyone who needs the functionality.
Installation and configuration was relatively easy (I have been using joomla sites for 4 years). I did have a configuration issue but sourcecoast responded quickly with a solution. They update the software on a regular basis (at least 3 times in the first month of my purchase). I'm trying to be balanced in my review but to be honest I couldn't be happier with the service and product.
The installation was easy and without problems! When something went suddenly wrong and we didn't even knew about it, we were lucky enough to have Alex (the man behind this product) looking at our site saw the problem and contacted us about what happen and how to fix it! This actually happen after our subscription was long time gone!
