The Facebook Platform enables Applications which tightly integrate with the Facebook.com website. These Applications write content to a Facebook user's Profile, News Feed, and also Canvas Pages. This content can be as rich and complex as any website, so Drupal is a natural choice for developing on this platform.
This session introduces the Drupal for Facebook project. Topics include the basics of the Facebook API, configuring Drupal for Facebook, and differences between developing for Canvas Pages versus regular web pages.
