SourceCoast Launches Joomla Facebook Extension Featuring Open Graph Actions

Share Article

SourceCoast’s new Facebook extension produces an organic explosion of social media engagement for Joomla users.

“We knew Open Graph Actions were a high priority for Joomla users,” SourceCoast owner, Alex Andreae said. “Our intention was to make this JFBConnect version easy to install and to use."

SourceCoast Web developers have launched a new version of their Joomla Facebook extension that enables Open Graph Actions. For Joomla users, this recent release of JFBConnect provides a long awaited weapon in the battle for social media attention. Joomla website owners can now have its users’ actions automatically pushed to their Facebook Timelines with little effort or time spent.

Open graph actions have some of the highest click through rates on Facebook. Anything a user does on a website, from look at a picture to comment on or read an article, can now be immediately posted on the user’s timeline. A simple click on a picture yields a message on the user’s Facebook Timeline. For example, the user’s Timeline message might read, “John Doe viewed this picture on SourceCoast (http://www.sourcecoast.com/)." This creates a huge advantage for Joomla website owners who rely on their users to communicate their message over Facebook. Up until now, these open graph actions were virtually unavailable to Joomla users. SourceCoast’s extension goes a step farther by allowing website owners the ability to monitor what has been posted on Facebook, when, and by whom. The result is a more efficient and effective website.

JFBConnect comes with Open Graph plugins for Joomla Content, JomSocial, EasyBlog, jReviews and K2; but custom actions for any extension can easily be created. The simple installation takes only a few minutes to set up. Andreae explains the setup in about four minutes in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xswMcK5zkQA&feature=plcp.

Alex Andreae started SourceCoast with his wife, Melissa, three years ago. The two met while working at Advanced Micro Devices in Austin, TX. After they married, they decided to branch out on their own and started SourceCoast Web Development. Their website tagline, “We Know Code” says it all. Since the company’s beginning, they have developed some of the most innovative Facebook extension for Joomla and have become regular speakers at Joomla conventions. This latest release is poised to bring the startup international attention.
