Using this would go beyond just being able to push updates (which would be nice as well).

Basically, the ability to connect to your fan page and post status (whether alone or based on content creation in Aptuitiv), creating Facebook Events when calendar events are created, photo galleries are duplicated on facebook when uploaded via the gallery, etc.

I can see a lot of cool uses for this.

First, I think having under site settings/social the ability to set up one (or more) pages/accounts. Then under user setup, you can restrict what users have the ability to post to social from what apps.

The actual posting process would be on creation and/or updates. I could see it being an automatic thing with new blog posts/calendar events. After creation, you could have a tab for managing the event: being able to post replies or even repost the link to your wall. Having the ability to change the status message for each posting would be great. I could also see it as an enabled dialog box after the first save to really draw your attention to the process.

I see this being heavily used with blog and calendar. I could see it as a request for real estate/rental (new listing, price lowered, etc.), store (new products, sales), campaigns (lnik to the archived campaign page).

Personally, for a couple of the church websites I manage, creating events in multiple locations is just time consuming. Being able to stop creating events manually on facebook would be great. Likewise, when posting a new blog post, it would be great to just publish to website and send directly to facebook.

This is a great idea. Can you expand upon some specific scenarios where you would use this? How do you envision it fitting into the admin?
