This module leverages the Facebook Open Stream API. Once installed, the module allows users of the Drupal instance to access their Facebook account and view the real time stream of their friends’ updates from Facebook in a block within their Drupal instance. Users can control the number of posts viewable via the profile settings tab.
To access live stream on their Drupal instance, a user will have to give the application permission to access his/her Facebook account. The module will auto-retrieve and update the Live Stream block .The auto-retrieval interval for the Live Stream, can be configured by site administrator in the block configuration page.
This module also supports Publish comments, likes and status messages functionality. Admin can allow whether the users of the application post comments, likes, status messages through admin/settings/facebook_stream page.
