Which API can connect FB account to Windows Live ID? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a question about connecting FB with Windows Live Account.

    I can manually manage FB service in https://profile.live.com/services/manage/

    Then I can connect to FB without account/password input in Metro Photos app & access FB's photos.

    Can anyone tell me which API can do this connection action?

  • There is no Live Connect API for that. What I can think of that for your application you need to use Facebook API. You need to check further on Facebook developer forum for this.

  • However, if there is no such API to achieve this function, how can Win8 built-in app "Photos" do?

    As I went through the overall process in Photos, it shows the message that the FB account will be connected to Windows Live ID.

    In addition, in FB authentication dialog, it also shows the similar message.

    (I am sorry that I cannot show the picture because they are traditional-Chinese characters...)

    This is what I am really confused...
