One-Click Registration with Facebook Connect

Facebook continues to grow at a rapid pace, and many sites have started to integrate Facebook Connect as a single sign on solution.

Relationship Management and "Buddy Lists" in Drupal

At the core of all the hype around "social networking," and "social media," is the fact that "social" websites allow members of a website to connect with each and develop relationships without needing the administrators or content editors to mediate these connections.
