I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on Windows Store development for Windows 8.
Applications using the Facebook App Promotion Button may connect to the internet to do the following:
Here is an example of the Facebook App Promotion Button experience inside of a blank Windows Store application:
The Facebook App Promotion Button is a button for the AppBar of Windows Store XAML apps. When clicked, it displays a flyout where the user can make a comment about the current app, and easily post it to Facebook.
The user will be prompted to sign into Facebook with their credentials.
After they authenticate to Facebook successfully, the post will be made to Facebook, and the user will receive visual confirmation of success.
The new post on Facebook will appear on the user’s wall like the below. Their comment will appear first, above a rectangle that contains metadata about the application from which it was posted. The example below is just using test data; in a real application, it would replace the app logo, the app name, and the app description. When the rectangle is clicked, it will launch the application’s listing page from which it can be downloaded.
