Hello,
Does this book talk about using any specific frameworks for social programming or using other tools like Open ID etc? I assume we are talking about integrating Facebook, Orkut or Twitter information into applications or dashboards of sorts.

Hi, Praful.

In terms of "frameworks" (I use the term loosely there) I use twitter-async for Twitter API integration, the official Facebook client libraries and the official OpenSocial PHP library.

The final part of the book looks at creating a microblog from scratch which uses the CodeIgniter web application framework.

I don't touch on OpenID although the Google Friend Connect library does support it as an authentication mechanism. As Google Friend Connect makes a web site an OpenSocial container it has a lot of flexibility in terms of coding.

Does that help?
