I ran across an online tool that allows a service to build unique slideshows set to music - yeah for me I know, but not the point.

I automatically thought of UMG when I noticed the ability to sign in to your online social accounts like Instagram or Facebook and retrieve photos associated with your account.

- I thought this was pretty nifty and would like to suggest for future enhancement consideration.

Thanks,
Dan

RSS? So Facebook has round about 800 million users and Instagram was recently purchased by FB but had over 10 million as of September 2011. These numbers are staggering and deserve due attention by anyone in the imaging/presentation business. I do understand the RSS feature already exist in UMG, but FB and the like offer API's for connecting users to their FB data/images/videos, etc.. I'm no expert but merely making a suggestion that this would seem like a great future investment on BizModules part as you always seem to stay on the cutting edge - and that's the way we like it!

Thank you very much for your suggestions, I really appreciate it.

so your idea was to connect UMG to Facebook, and "pull" Facebook albums into local UMG album?

Specifically - if a Gallery is setup as community it makes sense to allow users to browse their social albums and import or reference/link those, like from galleries with RSS. Otherwise it makes sense for an album owner, whether a FB user or an organization page, to import and/or reference FB album images as well as images they are tagged in.

I don't fully understand your latest post.

Last day I did spend some time on FB API and it seems to be possible to import all FB albums to UMG, I guess this will be added to a future version of UMG.

thanks.

This feature is really nice - everyone loves it and I hope you market this feature as it is really handy.
....now how about adding this feature to UVG?

This will be reviewed in future upgrades, I know many features could be very cool but we have limited time.

thanks.
