Social Providers and Keys

Social Providers allow the users of your application to comment on content and share it with their friends. Examples of Social Providers include services like Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. Each of these providers require you to sign up as a developer and obtain special codes called API Keys. These keys allow your application to communicate with users on their networks.
