WordPress users should find this of interest. Facebook has released a very comprehensive WordPress plugin.

With the new plugin, you can perform sophisticated auto-publishing to your Timeline and add many Facebook features to your self-hosted WordPress blog.

For example:

Activate Comments to let your readers easily comment from within their Facebook accounts.

Facebook Comments are the best way to add a social commenting feature to your blog. This will make it easy for your readers to comment on your content using their Facebook accounts AND this will dramatically reduce spam and trolls as commenters use their real identities.

This also boosts your content’s visibility as each comment is published on your commenter’s Timeline. The Comment plugin offers great admin options, including some impressive moderation features.

The Recommendations bar is one of the most powerful features of the plugin. In a nutshell, it does two things:

  • It displays a pop-in bar at the bottom of the navigation window to recommend articles to your readers based on what their friends have Liked on your blog.
  • It offers a social reader that your visitors can turn on to automatically share all of the articles they read on your blog.

WordPress sites hosted by Pembrokeshire Online can make full use of all the features provided by Facebook.
We can set up and integrate the official Facebook plugin for your wordpress site creating a basic Facebook app that allows you to post directly from your blog to your Facebook page and activate many other useful integration tools. We highly recommend using the plugin developed by Facebook for Facebook, there are other wordpress plugins available but none that we have found that give the scope for such seamless integration.

This WordPress plugin does not work on blogs hosted on WordPress.com.

This makes advanced Facebook social sharing features accessible to everyone enabling you to expand your customer base and interactivity.

This detailed article tells you how to install and use this powerful plugin.
