Facebook Live Stream as a Drupal ModuleLatest source code for this project is available on drupal.org. Please check http://drupal.org/project/facebook_streamThis module leverages the Facebook Open Stream API. Once installed, the module allows users of the Drupal instance to access their Facebook account and view the real time stream of their friends’ updates from Facebook in a block within their Drupal instance. Users can control the number of posts viewable via the profile settings tab.
To access live stream on their Drupal instance, a user will have to give the application permission to access his/her Facebook account. The module will auto-retrieve and update the Live Stream block .The auto-retrieval interval for the Live Stream, can be configured by site administrator in the block configuration page.
We are currently working on the following features and will update you once we get it up and tested.
1) Publish (Status updates/comments/likes) into the face book live stream via the drupal instance.
2) Provide Facebook Filter Support to the users via the drupal instance.
