Authentication with Facebook
Hi, this is Jon Flanders with Pluralsight and in this module on building applications with the Facebook iOS SDK. I'm going to talk about Authentication. So, the idea is by the end of this module, you should be able to create an end-to-end login experience using iOS and Facebook.

More on Sharing and Other Features
Hi, this is Jon Flanders with Pluralsight and in this module about the Facebook iOS SDK, I'm going to talk about sharing and some other miscellaneous features. So hopefully by the end of this module, you'll be able to understand when and how to use these additional features. So first - sharing, we've talked about sharing quite a bit in this course. The first module talked about sharing when you're not even a Facebook application, the second and third and fourth modules were 60-70% about sharing. Sharing on Facebook is one of the main things that apps do. I mean other than whatever their functionality is, you might check in, but share on Facebook, play a game, but share on Facebook, so sharing on Facebook is a big part of apps. So we've got the iOS integrated dialog, we've got the Facebook Native Dialog. The one thing we haven't talked about is, what if you want to use the OpenGraph API, but allow the user to be able to customize the story as it gets posted to Facebook to their feed, and that's where we can use the Facebook Native Dialog that supports an API, then integrates with OpenGraph.
