Full Facebook integration
Try creating a more full facebook integration, not only "like buttons" but also on the login system, for commenting ordering etc.

Facebook is a very important channel to share photos and better integration is critical. Any chance there will be movement on this feature? If other sites have this functionality, cant code be modified to Zen site? Seems like this should be an easy win, especially if code doesn't need to be developed from scratch.
Also, what has happened to Zen, I have not seen as many feature/functionality updates lately. I enjoy the site very much and find it very easy to use, but might have to start looking elsewhere for sites..

I want to sound more mature about this but I can't so...ew.

- What's the point. They seem not to read them, bother about them or implement them. Look at the farce with the multilingual site "development", the delays and everything else. I feel this "customer feedback" stuff is a sham, something to make us feel "engaged" but the last year or so has seen a 180 degree shift from hero to zero for me.
I fear for Zenfolio's future. It just needs a competitor to make it "very easy" to move over and I suspect many will jump like a shot.
I've for one been very patient. The ongoing poor comms, dire roadmap, 1990s-style feature set and the recent stupid attempt at multilingual development has been the final straw for me. I wish I had not let my subscription renew last month, so I have 11 months to get my act in order and move somewhere.

We NEED people to comment on blog posts with their Facebook profile, which posts to Facebook for others to see and bring in more visitors.
I CANNOT believe this is still NOT in the making. Without this feature, Zenfolio is lightyears behind Wordpress...
Is there a ouji board to wake up the developers. Posting images to Facebook with the export tool still stinks. No captions or information. Looks more like a bad spam attempt than audience integration.

Yes, client login via Facebook.
Also, when exporting photos/galleries to Facebook, there should be more options AND these photos should be resized to fit current Facebook pixel width (in order for our photos to be sharper and not blurred by FB compression).
I currently do not use the export feature because every photo I post to Facebook gets my special treatment to help keep them sharp and crisp - and that make all the difference in the world.

This needs to include conversion tracking pixels.

Please, please, please make this one happen. Comments through fb is vital
Love to see a Facebook integration to be able to display and sell photos through facebook

Absolutely. Facebook and their Like Box is needed. Currently you are measured by how many fans you have. Even when I get 200 visitors, unless visitors can see right there the Facebook Like Box, they will not hit it.
Please add this!

Critical. Cannot believe that other things are voted higher than this.
Blue Ridge Expressions commented
Allowing discussions to be followed by Facebook (&Twitter) users is critical. FB is the commenting engine of blogs now, not internal links -- I want friends of friends to see moderated activity on my blogs and photos!

if I could get my photos thumbnailed well on facebook efficiently and keep my protection rights (not posting directly ON their site) AND let users purchase photos I'd be ahead of the game. great idea.
Yes login using Facebook would be great. Most websites of any more offer this functionality
I agree with John Bailon, this option opens invaluable marketing avenues for use as zen clients. I would also like to see something done with facebook advertising and integration of the blog and our facebook pages

Also, possibly "tagging" photos on Zenfolio via Facebook. May not be possible to use Facebook's native "tag" feature, but if a notification appears, then that would be great viral marketing for us.
A "like" button and a "send" button should increase earnings for everyone.

I've been thinking of creating a Facebook Photography page and have been
looking at other photographers' pages. One of the things I saw and liked was a
tab (maybe it's called) for selling. I thinks it's a feature of
fineartamerica, but it kind of looks like a FB page with individual photo and
their prices listed. Do we here at Zenfolio have a similar thing we can do?
