A lot of my users like to use Facebook Events for quickly inviting their friends and contacts to an Event.
Facebook allows Event attendees and status to be exported by the Event owner or manager - the only fields allowed to be exported are the Guest (attendee) full name and Facebook Event status (Going, Maybe or Invited).
I can export that attendee list from Facebook and import the attendees into Civi using an Unsupervised dedupe rule with First Name and Last Name (once I separate them out in the .csv file) and an updated Event Status to match Civi values (Registered or Attended).
But - is anyone using the Facebook API (or other Facebook Developer tools) or CiviCRM API to automate this process, and/or able to get more fields exported out from Facebook?
And if you're wondering "why not force your users to use a Civi online event registration page instead?", that's valid, but I'd rather not discourage my users from using other tools - especially Facebook, with which they are already very familiar and like - which is often not the case with Civi :(. I'd rather figure out how to quickly sync/integrate/import Facebook data into Civi.
