    Show live comments from facebook/twitter on joomla site?

    On a website i am building for a client they wanted a reviews page... I have used the module for the facebook social plugin that lets users post comments to the website page...

    However they have informed me they would like the reviews page to show comments from their existing facebook and twitter accounts, as well as giving the user the ability to post via the website and it show up on their facebook/twitter pages

    Best free plugins for this?

    There are many social media integrating plugins in Joomla , but I don't think any that work the other way around or maybe I don't have enough knowledge about this.

    Not an answer as such, but is their facebook page monitored regularly? It's quite risky to offer a live unmonitored feed as you don't want potentially offensive or damaging comments being plastered across your page. I would think a monitored feed where posts must be approved would be much safer

    Yeah facebook is their man web presence at the minute... he wants an actual website... where people can comment to add reviews... at present im using the facebook social plugin so that logged in facebook users can post their comments and they display on the website, but i think he is looking for something more along the lines that it integrates, so when someone posts via the website - it posts to the facebook page aswell... and possibly the other way around
