Now imagine the possibilities for your JomSocial communities when we roll out JS 1.2 in a couple of weeks-- which will have Facebook Connect for JomSocial!

Stay tuned---I'll have more info to share about the Web 2.0/Social Media workshops Azrul & I have been attending over the next few days, and of course, I will fill you in on any new JomSocial developments as they come in....
