Use the Facebook for WordPress Plugin to Reach More of Your Readers

by golda on June 14, 2012

Extend Your Reach, Connect with Your Target Audience and Have More Fun With The New Facebook for WordPress Plugin

 

A few days ago, Facebook announced a new plugin that integrates perfectly with your blog, called Facebook for WordPress. As with any other plugin, test, test, test and see what works for you. Also make sure that you backup your site before making any changes…just in case. You really just want to get into the habit of backing up your valuable information. Remember, you are a business owner!
 
If you have trouble locating the plugin from inside your WordPress dashboard, then you can download it here, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook/. One last thing, make sure that you are running the most current version of WordPress prior to installing this plugin.

 

That was pretty simple wasn't it? Facebook for WordPress totally ROCKS! I hope you see the incredible value that this plugin packs but like I mentioned…don't abuse it by tagging people and pages just to gain visibility.

So what excites you about this plugin? Go ahead and leave me a comment below.

Thanks for the instructional video Golda! I think you just didn't give instructions, you gave suggestions and the preps necessary before installing this awesome plug-in. What's totally exciting about this plug-in is that you get to do customization with less coding and, well we can definitely post to an author's Facebook timeline, so that should be exciting! This would definitely make your WP blog more social! And I think Facebook will not stop on WP, tumblr…along with others will soon have a piece of FB plug ins in the future. Thanks for taking the time making this video, it sure is useful!

Hmmm. Maybe I'll install when I get back from vacation. I've learned to be a little gun shy about new plugins. I'll be watching to see how it goes.

Where are we vacationing? I think the most important thing to remember with plugins is to back up your site first.

Understandable. I love plugins and the thing to remember is to always back your site up regularly and definitely before you start adding plugins.
