 +===== Purpose =====
 +This [[Enterprise Service Bus]] system allows a Software Developer to post to the Facebook wall of a user that logged in to WorkXpress via Facebook.
  
 +===== End User Experience =====
 +A User of a WorkXpress Application that utilizes the Facebook Enterprise Service Bus functionality will need to authorize this application to allow posting to their wall.  This is accomplished via the [[Field Type - Facebook OAuth|Facebook OAuth]] field.
 +
 +Sending posts from WorkXpress to Facebook is a two step process. ​ First the values for Message, Link, Link Caption, Link Description,​ and Link Name must be stored somewhere in WorkXpress for the ESB Profile to reference. ​ This can be accomplished with a [[Table|table]],​ or by storing these values on any accessible record in WorkXpress. ​ Next, [[Action Type - Enterprise Service Bus|Enterprise Service Bus Actions]] need to be added to send the Post Data to Facebook. ​ While setting up that Action, the Software Developer will setup a [[Enterprise Service Bus Data Handler - Facebook Post Outgoing|Facebook Post]] ESB Profile to let WorkXpress know how to read post records to send to Facebook.  ​
 +
 +===== Additional Facebook Functions =====
 +
 +In addition to the Wall Post ESB it is possible to utilize the Facebook Social Plugins for [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​like-button|Like Buttons]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​share-button|Share Buttons]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​send-button|Send Buttons]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​embedded-posts|Embedded Posts]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​follow-button|Follow Buttons]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​comments|Comments]],​ [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​activity|Activity Feed]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​recommendations|Recommendataions Feed]], [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​like-box-for-pages|Like Box]], and [[https://​developers.facebook.com/​docs/​plugins/​facepile|Facepile]]. ​ To utilize these functions the developer simply needs to do 3 things.
 +  - [[Setup Facebook Account|Sign Up and Create a Facebook Application]]
 +  - Create an [[Field Type - Expression|Expression Field]] to display the html
 +  - Copy the html code for the plugin you wish to use from the facebook developer site.
