Create a Facebook Graph API App in Flash: Displaying Facebook Info - Tuts+ Premium


In this mini-series, exclusive to Tuts+ Premium members, you'll learn how to use Flash to build a Facebook Graph API application that can create slideshows for your public pages. The final part shows you how to actually retrieve and display the information from Facebook.

Premium Preview

Click to try the app on Facebook.

This application allows you to select a Facebook album or event list from one of your public pages and turn it into a slideshow for your page tab. When the users enter your page, they will see photos from your chosen album, with your photo title and description, or event name, date and invites (for the event tab).

In the previous part of this series, we created the event slider generator. In this part we’ll make the actual slider for the images (and later, for the events).

You’ll need to be logged in to Facebook in order to see this demo:
