The SocialByWay library is an open source initiative from Imaginea (https://github.com/Imaginea/SocialByWay) . SocialByWay is javascript based social plugin library for the application developers and site developers. SocialByWay API provides a common set of interfaces to the developers who wants to develop their own widgets connecting and using the social sites like Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, Picasa, google+ etc features.

The challenge it solves is  when developers integrates the  social features from the third party sites, they need to learn the APIs and integration, which in turn increases the time to market. There are 2 parts to SocialByWay library, the core library and the widgets.  The Core library includes the interfaces and Widgets are built using the core library. Developers are provided on the site with the documents to use these features.
