Has anyone had any success integrating with social media like Facebook or Twitter? I have a client who would like to be able to count social media hits on specific pages. I'm not sure if Facebook even has open APIs.
more specifics, please. integration with what? Web Direct (web site), FMGo? FMPro?
and Facebook has an extensive API. You may need to be a member to access.
Thanks for your prompt response, Beverly,
This is strictly a WebDirect app.
An example might be:
The client has a Goal to increase hits/likes/comments on their Facebook page by 50% through print advertising.
The Performance Metric would be "increase Facebook hits from 100/month to 150/month"
They would like to be able to automatically collect the number of hits in a given time period for a specific Facebook page.
Does that answer your questions?
Facebook showing on Web Direct or Facebook linking to Web Direct or both?
Those web services can be accessed via MBS Plugin with the CURL commands.
For JSON based web services, our JSON functions can help.
For SOAP based the XPath queries can be useful.
And MBS Plugin comes with a Twitter example included.
Thanks for your reply. This seems to be what I'm looking for. Do you know if this plugin works with WebDirect?
I only want to be able to connect to Facebook from WebDirect to collect the number of hits for a specific page.
you can start here
