How to add Custom Authentication which integrates all the social media authentication? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    am developing a W8 app using C# and XAML

    from my app i want to share some info on social networking sites like Facebook, Google+ and twitter.


    For my app i have created pages in Facebook, google+ and twitter,

    I have a share button to share the info,

    If a user Clicks share button it should go to facebook, google+ and twitter pages.

    How to integrate all the authentication into my own custom authentication?

    any API's for this??

  • Your app doesn't need to know anything about the share targets. It should just share the data and let the user decide.

    The user will be able to choose from any share targets they have set up on their system that accept the data. Users who have configured FaceBook will be offered FaceBook as a share target. Users who have configured Twitter will have Twitter offered as a share target. Those who have configured Contoso will have Contoso offered as a share target.
