Social network applications and services have developed into major parts of our lives. It’s hard to imagine a world without Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or VK. We use them to contact our friends, inform others about our hobbies, or simply read the news from selected RSS feeds every day.
When you are browsing the Web, you can find many places that interact strongly with social media. XDA is one such place. This type of integration can also be added to Android projects, and this can now be done rather easily with a library created by XDA Forum Member gorbino.
With this library, users will be able to perform the most common actions like share photos, link, add or remove your friends.
