07/17/12 Tuesday Training: Integrating Facebook With WordPress
With over 845 million users, Facebook is the world’s largest social networking site, and with over 53 million WordPress sites in the world, WordPress is one of the most popular publishing platforms out there. In today’s business world, integrating these two social media powerhouses isn’t an option—it’s a MUST!
Before I go into HOW to integrate Facebook with your website, I first want to explain WHY it is important J Integrating Facebook with your website allows visitors to share your content! Also, people who visit your website need to know that they can connect with you, and if your website is lacks a way to connect through Facebook, people are going to wonder why!
Remember, linking your business website with Facebook is a great way to get your content shared, connect with your audience and obtain 3rd party verification that you the go-to expert in your field!
A great way to begin integrating social media sites, like Facebook, with YOUR business website to choose the right WordPress Plugin! If you visit http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ you can browse thousands of WordPress plugins for integrating Facebook with WordPress. Here are some Plugins to start you off:

This plugin allows visitors to easily share your content and connect with you on social networks!
Facebook Comments for WordPress:
This plugin integrates the Facebook commenting system right into your website. If a reader is logged into Facebook while viewing any comment-enabled page or post, they’ll be able to leave a comment using their Facebook profile!
Once you integrate Facebook with your WordPress website, you can begin to add social sharing capabilities for other popular social media platforms—like Twitter and LinkedIn! Social sharing allows visitors to your website to share your content on their own social media sites and provides a way for visitors to connect with you! Remember, integrating social media sites with your website is seen as 3rd party verification that you are an expert, thus making YOU the CELEBRITY of your field 🙂
