I'm looking for a way of sharing stuff social media sites like Facebook. I'm assuming that do this a plug-in would be needed.

Though such a plug-in exist?

If not, are other people interested in this?

Is there a developer that would be willing to do it ?

Al Meyer began a social plugin, but pulled back because it required Neobook to be unicode compliant, which it isn't yet. Once it is, a plugin will be able to take full advantage of their API's.

Maybe Al can give us more details.

That's it. I am trying to make a work around via an external dll.

I have it done in Delphi 2010, but it is not compatible with current Neobook SDK.

I've done quite a bit of Facebook related work (apps, etc) and the biggest issue you'll find is they change their API on a whim and with little notice. Any plugin developer is going to have to keep up with such changes or its pointless.

Twitter is going the same way.

That's true. Twitter just changed their api, breaking lots of programs. To make it worse, they instate the changes gradually, so some accounts work, some don't. Eventually none will, but it makes it tough on the developer because the update won't work on those accounts that haven't propogated in Twitter's system yet. What a joke......

This would be a welcome plugin once Al figgers it out. :)
