I’m thinking about suggesting migrating a University department’s forums from Facebook Groups to a Discourse install.
However, the users will be mostly kids who live exclusively on Facebook. Super tight integration with FB would be a prerequisite. It would be cool to be able to get a new item in your FB stream upon new posts in specific forum tags, but the absolute minimum is getting notified in the FB inbox when you are mentioned or responded to in the Discourse forum.
I know woefully little about the Facebook API. Is this even possible?
Is this something that can currently be done using Discourse and maybe a bit of custom programming to talk to the FB API?
Does the Discourse team have plans to implement anything like this in the core?
If not, is this worth a Plugin request?
