    I'm trying to implement chat in one of my apps and I want the user to use social login like Facebook or Twitter. I've done a heck of a lot of research and I'm struggling to get the answer. I've set up a Windows Azure account and used the Mobile services to authenticate to Facebook. I've tried using the Buddy sdk to implement chat but that only works with a Buddy account, not social account (apparently you can with iOS, Android and Win8 but not WP).

    I'm now about to look into the SignalR SDK which I'll try out tonight but if anyone knows a way of doing this or what technologies to use, could you let me know. I don't need the code, just what's the best method.

    ok looks like SignalR is out of the question. Not much info out there but looks like I'll need to write some server side code and I only have VS for WP. Not full version.

    May just have to use PushNotifcations with Azure and won't be instant but should be good enough for what I want to do.
