Facebook: Add Social Plugins

Facebook makes it fool proved to add social plugins to your website. Basically a thing done in minutes:

  1. Register your website as an application on facebook. This can be done at http://developers.facebook.com/setup/, the only thing required is a name and the site’s URL.
  2. Place a javascript onto every page you’re going to add social plugins. The javascript can be found at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/javascript/. You only need to add your application-id as it has been created in step 1.
  3. The only thing left is to place a facebook-tag on each of the pages where you want to add the like-box, recommend-box or comment feature. For the like-button it’s as simple as: <fb:like></fb:like>.
