This project was first developed thanks to a scholarship from Google Summer of Code. The project description can be seen here

The Social API harmonizes social networking functionality in Drupal, providing an extensible module that allows integration of modules for user login, autoposting, and social widgets.

The Social API project is also based on other 3 main components:

Social Auth: implements methods and templates that will be used by login-related modules
Social Post: provides methods to allow autoposting to social network’s accounts
Social Widgets: allows sub-modules to add functionality to add widgets (like buttons, embedded content) to node, blocks, etc.

These are the sub-modules which work on top of the projects mentioned above:
User Authentication



  • Facebook Widgets Buttons: Allows site builders to add Facebook buttons (like, send, and send) to a block or a specific content type.
