In this WordPress Tutorial I show you how to add a Facebook Social Plugin for “Comments” to your WordPress blog or website regardless of which WordPress theme you are using. You do NOT need to be using the Thesis Theme to follow this WordPress Video Tutorial or to use this Facebook Social Plugin. This is a really cool plugin that will allow people to comment on your blog post or page and share it on their Facebook Wall at the same time! That makes it easier for the person commenting on your blog and gives your blog post so much more exposure and visibility. You can find all the details for the Facebook Social Plugin for Comments here in written form. However, my video shares some critical information with you that I could not find on the Facebook web page about sharing the individual posts.
Get your Facebook Application ID first!
Before you install this plugin, however, you need to create a Facebook Application or Facebook App and get an App ID. It’s sounds complicated but it’s really very simple and easy to do. I have created a short video that shows you step-by-step how to create a Facebook Application and get an App ID here. Once you create that Facebook Application and get that App ID you can come back here and watch this video to complete the steps. It’s all so much easier than it sounds and my videos make it all very easy to follow. Enjoy!
