Facebook just released a WordPress plugin this week that makes it super easy to integrate your WordPress blog with Facebook Pages and Timelines. It’s called the Facebook for WordPress and is available in the WordPress plugins directory.
Watch the Video
I made a video that shows how to set up and configure the plugin, and demo some of the cool things it can do:
Deep Integration – No Code Required
The plugin provides some deep integration between self-hosted WordPress blogs and Facebook Timelines and Pages in three major areas:
1) Social Publishing and Mentions
It allows you to publish on friends timelines and on Facebook Page timelines whenever you Publish a new blog post in WordPress with “mentions”.
2) Social Plugins on WordPress Pages and Posts
These include Like, Send, Share and Subscribe buttons on your WordPress Posts and Pages. You can also replace WordPress comments with Facebook comments, which are indexed by the search engines now. You can also provide a “Recommendation” bar.
3) WordPress Widgets
The Plugin provides several WordPress Widgets for Recommendations, Activity streams, Like, Send and Subscribe buttons.
You can also configure it to automatically publish new blog posts to the Author’s timeline, or to any other Facebook Pages you control.
Here’s Facebook’s description of the plugin.
