Could I ask one simple question to all of you who responded negatively to the Facebook connect project? Have you studied carefuly what FBC really is and what are the benefints? What FBC really is:
1. It simplifies signup process
2. Allows to import following items from FB account: interests, age, gender, location, profile picture, name, friends, photos, events, groups, and more.
3. Users can easily share their actions on partner sites with their friends via Facebook Feed, requests, and notifications. So if this Facebook Connect integration is done well, whatever your users (who signed up using FB Connect) do on you site (like post a blog, create a group) will be shown in their and their friends' Facebook Feeds linking to your site!. This is a great free advertising and will drive traffic from Facebook to your social networks!
