h1. Facebook and Portal Integration II: Under the hood  Well, looks like I found time to write more about the things that go on under the hood of the integration of Facebook and the SAP Netweaver Portal. This blog will give details and also some embedded demo videos about the integration.   This is second in the series of two blogs.

Canvas Callback URL  This is the address where your application lives on your server, or the server where the application is being hosted. h5. 5. Connect URL   Sample Image of a Facebook Application
