The same way as Tweets are shown. Unified feed like it was on Nokia N9 would be perfect.

I completely agree with this request - the social media integration (and the "Feed") from my N9 experience was one of the reasons which led me to buy a Jolla phone in the first place.

BTW: just saw this in my Twitter timeline: @Sfiet_Konstantin apparently working for full FB-client for SailfishOS https://twitter.com/SfietKonstantin/status/415985297433067520

i could not agree more.. the way N9 notificationscreen was setup is Great !! This would make life easier on my Jolla.. to see everything at once,Callenderfeeds/feeds/twitter/To-Do,s/B-days (i dont have facebook).. One screen For all my Notifications !!

Kind Regards

Do you all agree, that this feature was released? for me only the Facebook-notifications are shown in the eventscreen. Where can we see the Facebook Feeds? I think what @Oleksii means here is not released!!

@Zandi is right: I meant news feed, not Facebook notifications. So I reopened the request.

We agree that Facebook feed integration is very handy. However, providing this feature also depends on Facebook, who has its rules on allowing other 3rd parties (like Jolla) to use their services. We are trying to get in touch with Facebook to improve the experience on SailfishOS.

Any news on this?

Alex ( 2014-04-23 11:08:07 +0200 )edit

Could this be considered an issue to be flagged with the roadmap tag? Or not until things are clear with facebook?

One amazing feature on N9 was to choose on which facebook album upload the pictures !! Very very very useful, in fac some albums have different privacy settings. Hope they realize a good facebook integration

Hi, i am used to my nokia n9, and therefore used to see all my notifications at once.. Now i have to swipe up (thats cool) but instead of reading my notifications i get a icon (twitter or facebook) and a number.. Wich is pretty anoying and not cool... just swipe up read it swipe down Bam ! All your notifications in one glance

swipe up and voila...//twitter//facebook//agenda//events//brightness// you name it !!

Kind Regards Jimmy Neutron

It would probably also mean that the facebook ads should be shown in the facebook feed or pay to facebook to get to show "their" data without ads.

If it's implemented similarly as in N9 why should there be ads in the feed. The notification screen in N9 can show Twitter (Home or Mentions), FB (News Feed) and RSS-feeds in the same timeline, and I haven't seen a single ad in any of those.. Does this mean that Nokia has been paying for FB?

foss4ever ( 2013-12-25 23:12:56 +0200 )edit

Facebook had ads shortly in 2007 but removed them until 2012 and N9 was released at 2011 so I don't think there was requirement to show any ads that time.

On the other hand nowadays Facebook is showing ads on touch.facebook.com, so why wouldn't they require 3rd party apps to show them if they integrate the news feed into their products.

tigeli ( 2013-12-25 23:45:03 +0200 )edit

Anyway, the whole thing needs to be communicated with Facebook to get their approval whatever will be implemented & released.

tigeli ( 2013-12-25 23:48:49 +0200 )edit

@tigeli: ok, didn'tt know abt that historical timeline (sic!) of FB ads ;) Seems that it's in the hands of FB to decide what kind of FB-client, feed, notifications or support we can expect in Jolla.. and for what price.. ;)

foss4ever ( 2013-12-26 02:12:57 +0200 )edit

@tigeli just add it the feed with adds. I really doubt that the community will not manage to create a patch to remove them (assuming that the feed parts are opensource and you will never close this patching functionality). So everyone will be happy!

No idea whether there are plans for a unified feed à la N9, but a separate native Facebook feed seems to at least have been in the plans (see post #6 in the talk.maemo.org-thread " How to get Facebook integration on Jolla?".

So is is not possible to enable this feature manually as a normal user again by editing the specific files?! :D

I believe this is a very important question and should be considered in conjunction with this one: native-facebook-client-integrated-with-system-feeds-and-notifications
