We are considering using GateIn/exo as “backend part” of our publicly available web 2.0 application. It should provide the necessary functionality for user management, other administrative tasks and messaging. Our users should be able to automatically create their new (portal) accounts and login with their existing facebook (or OpenSocial) accounts. Our application will run as gadget on the GateIn dashboard and in the near future it should also be available as facebook app.
What do you think about the use of GateIn as platform for such an application? What would be the best way to integrate e.g. “facebook connect” for automatic user account creation and login?
