This chapter will focus on the core concepts behind capturing and using a user’s social profile information, making external data requests from a container, and porting applications from one container to another. Our specific focus areas will be:
Porting a Facebook application to an OpenSocial container, and porting applications between different OpenSocial containers
Accessing and using user profile information
Increasing an application’s base with user friendships
At the end of the chapter, we will roll the lessons we’ve learned into a project to build a full social application that promotes user growth.
