Do you have a WordPress blog or website?
I found this great list of over 40 Facebook plug-ins to link up to your WP site. I’ve used the ‘Like Box Widget’ on my blog. You might find something you could use too!
With a WordPress Facebook plugin you can integrate Facebook with your blog or website or the other way around. Trust me there are several advantages of doing this and a lot of businesses do it to take optimal advantage of social media marketing! Facebook is close to having 1 billion active users and without a doubt it is one of the most important social sites to build an online presence on. Users create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics. This makes Facebook great for viral marketing in specific niches. Most serious bloggers and internet marketers are taking Facebook very seriously and treat it as a medium to promote and share stuff with their friends, followers and customers- much like Twitter. Due to the popularity of WordPress it is interesting to have good integration between Facebook and WordPress sites and this is where a WordPress Facebook plugin is useful. In this post, I have gathered some of the best Facebook WordPress plugins that among other things will help you to:
- Synchronize and display comments between the two platforms
- Use WordPress as CMS to generate content for Facebook pages
- Easily add like buttons, widgets etc. to Facebook
- Unlock content and downloads by getting likes from visitors
- and much more…!
