Facebook finally announced its official WordPress plugin to simplify integration of Facebook into your WordPress website. The plugin allows you to easily cross publish content on your profile and Facebook page. You can also choose to mention your Facebook friends as a part of the post which means more distribution of the website.
In addition, you can use the Recommendations Bar, which allows the users to click and authenticate to enable social reading.
The following social plugins are also available as WordPress widgets:
1) Activity Feed: Shows readers their friends’ activity on a particular website.
2) Recommendations: Personalized suggestions to the readers for pages on a website.
3) Comments Box: SEO enabled comments. It means now search engines can index your comments. But this comment system will hijack your default comment system such as Disqus or WordPress.
The plugin will support internationalization and will also work on mobile devices. It’s a great move by Facebook as WordPress powers 16.6 percent of the web with more than 600 million unique visitors per month. Now you don’t need multiple third party plugins as this plugin completely make your website social in a couple of clicks only.
