If you ever used vBulletin’s Facebook Connect, then you have 90% of the set-up done. Next step is to go to the Forum category of your choice and link that to the Facebook Group ID of choice.
Drive more revenue and customers
This mod alone will quickly pay vBSocial Lifetime off. Use this as a bonus feature for your members to join your paid VIP section. We’ve noticed that the more features you offer to your paid section of a forum, the more members are receptive to it and join.
Privacy in mind
Whether you have a public Facebook Group, private, or secret group, this modification will act accordingly. If your group is secret, it will ask a Facebook user trying to access the forum category to login with Facebook to verify they have credentials. If not, they won’t be allowed in.
Compatibile with vBulletin 4

Does this work for large, very active VIP sections?
Untested for large VIP sections.
Can it slow the forum down?
Data is transferred simultaneously back and forth between the forum category and Facebook. If a lot of data is being transferred all the time, it can slow it down, surely, depending on the Facebook server that is connecting to your site.
How do I prevent unauthorized users from viewing my VIP Data on Facebook?
Make the group secret
Can users who do not use Facebook Connect, but are allowed to go in my VIP, can they still go in?
Yes, we have built a setting to allow that. Select yes in settings.
