Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free.

I'ld like to create a very basic directory where user can enter their social network profiles and pick a username. From that data a little website gets generated. The sign in process should be managed via Twitter or Facebook.

Where do I start with this? Are there any frameworks, api's or something like that available?

Thanks, Bob

Each Social Network has its Own API.. Start there.



Twitter Single Sign on: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/sign_in_with_twitter

And lastly.. the blog post that got me started with my first twitter app: http://www.snipe.net/2009/07/writing-your-first-twitter-application-with-oauth/
