Create Facebook App ID

First step is to create a Facebook App ID for your blog. This is a very quick and easy process. Just navigate to https://developers.facebook.com/quickstarts/ and follow the instructions.

  1. Select type of App you will be using it with; for WordPress select “Website”
  2. Give it a name that you will recognize at a later date and remember you might have other sites you will need to distinguish it from. Limited to 32 characters.
  3. Embed Facebook Javascript on your website. this need to be placed on every page of the website, I use AIO Webmaster to place javascript on WordPress as it gives the option to add in header, various Analytics tags, webmaster tags. I placed the Facebook javascript in my head even though it says directly after the <body> tag it does not make a difference but it could affect your page load times as the <head> loads first so I wouldn’t recommend adding too much javascript in there.
  4. Test integration. Just simply paste the sample code for the like button and publish your post to see if it appears.
  5. Done. Now you can embed a Facebook video in a post.
