Rails for Facebook Part 2: Adding Social Components

We’ll extend the application to include social features so you can share your run progress with friends. You’ll learn how to:

  • publish app-specific information to a user’s profile area
  • allow a user to add your application to their profile
  • create news feeds that show up on your and your friends’ walls
  • create one-line and short-story templates, and publish them
  • create multiple template versions to aggregate news
  • send notifications to other users
  • add flash messages for better feedback
