FB Elements for Zoo

More of a plugin than a module, FB Elements for Zoo uses Facebook's OpenGraph API to allow login with FB, Aol, Yahoo & Hotmail on your Joomla site. Users can comment on website content and replies to the comment on their "wall" post back to the website.

Okay, so this is a Zoo element....doesn't Zoo come with a Facebook Commenting element already? The short answer is yes, with the exception that it isn't quite as "cool". This nice addition expands on the core elements features by adding in the "post back" feature. "Liking" or "Login with Facebook Account" is one thing - but having all the replies on a user's Facebook Wall continue to post back to the website and the original article or content item is another.

Additionally, users can login with their AOL, Yahoo or Hotmail account. This means any of the social features on these sites will continue to report back replies to the conversation string as well. For many business', this will result in 3-4 comments on an item and some gradual increase in activity...but for the select few "busy" commercial industries, this adds a whole new element to social marketing on your Joomla website. Facebook Elements for Zoo is compatible with Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7

Facebook Commenting

Imagine a manufacturer or retailer of a hot product in the 18-35 age demographic market, like an iPhone 4 or a new gaming system. With a single comment to the manufacturer or retailer's website, hundred's of replies and likes would begin to populate on the website.

During the pandemic, as our clients businesses and people all across America began suffering, we dedicated just under $1MM in billable hours to lead the Marketing & Digital Branding of a high profile NDA client that was working to help everyday people and businesses across the nation. It was an incredible honor to be of service and leverage our wealth of skills, knowledge and resources to help real people. Without a single dollar spent, we reached 40MM people and our content was viewed by about 125k people a day. Our conversion rate was over 80% - and we’re proud to say we helped businesses and people across the nation. We can’t wait to use what we’ve learned for our clients: Those we haven’t met yet, and the loyal friends who’ve used our services since we began in 2008. Let’s get to work, America 🇺🇸

Great design sense from Been-ART. Great design feels right at home, easy to understand, and stays on-brand while putting your views or user FIRST. To effectively communicate visually, successful brands don’t design to be artistically expressive—they design to connect with the audience, target...the human being on the other end.
