How does Filestack and Facebook integration work?

Using the Filestack File Picker, users can log in with Facebook to choose photos from their albums to upload to the selected service or application.

Here’s how a company can integrate Filestack’s File Picker into their web application to enable users to upload files from Facebook to the application. Here is a breakdown of each step:

  1. Company Signs up with Filestack: The company creates an account with Filestack to gain access to the Filestack Developer Portal, where they can configure settings such as storage details and security requirements.
  2. Integration of File Picker: The company integrates File Picker into its web application, allowing users to upload files seamlessly. Typically, only a few lines of code are needed. For example, in JavaScript, it can be like:
import * as filestack from 'filestack-js';

const client = filestack.init('YOUR API KEY');

client.upload(fileObject).then(data =>console.log(data.url));

Integration of File Picker

  1. User Interaction: Application users engage with the File Picker within the web application to select and upload files from their Facebook accounts. The File Picker uses the OAuth2 process to securely access the user’s Facebook photos.
