Spring Social Tutorial

Social media seems to be everywhere, and most of us use social media services such as Facebook and Twitter every day. That is why it is only natural that many software projects require a some kind of social media integration.

The most common requirement is that an user must be able to create an user account and sign in by using a social sign in provider such as Facebook and Twitter.

However, some applications require a tighter social media integration. One example of such requirement is that the application wants to send posts to either Facebook or Twitter (or both).

The Spring Social project was born as an answer to these requirements, and my Spring Social tutorial will teach you to integrate Spring Social with your Spring powered applications.
