  • Hi,

    I just Googled "FB Plugins for WordPress" and you came out at the top of the search results, so you must have some good knowledge within this area – so would you be able to answer my question?

    I have seen a blog that was using a plugin where by, instead of placing a comment (like here) it automatically detects you are a facebook user and displays your facebook profile picture – then you leave a comment which posts to your wall and on the blog.

    A) Have you any idea what this may be called?

    B) Would it be giving away loads of juice from the page (SEO concern) by having so many comments which point back to facebook?

    Would appreciate your thoughts.

    Regards

    @Dora You are talking about this? http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plu

    If you provide me with a URL, I can tell you more about what code they are using. No matter how hard one tries, you can always figure out what plugins/scripts they are using 🙂

    As far as SEO, I have used Facebook comments on some of my other sites. While they do not necessarily lead to better rankings, the likes and interactions my sites get have helped my other businesses. But the fact that the comments may not be indexable is a huge issue. I encourage you to read on this piece: http://www.seoskeptic.com/are-facebook-comments-s

    As far as the comment system I would recommend, I would recommend Intense Debate. It gives you the best of all worlds. But you may have already tried that.

  • Hello. Thanks for the info. I like the share plugin you are using on this blog post – where it is down the left of the post. Is this a WordPress plugin? If so, what is it? Thanks so much for your time?

      @Creek Are you talking about Digg Digg?

  • Thank you for nice info, and I've found a lot of worth full things here.

    I'll try to use it for my web

    regards

  • I couldn't agree more. No one would know about a person's blog without Facebook. Facebook has managed to get people connected with one another.

  • Thanks for this Facebook WordPress Plugin roundup!

      Thanks Karol. 🙂

  • Facebook to blog is the best thing for bloggers. It is perfect method to save time. It is something like Zemanta reblogging.

    What is your take on using OnlyWire? I use it and it sends my posts to over 30 social media sites as soon as I hit publish. You can link it into your WordPress account with a plugin called OnlyWire for WordPress [OFFICIAL]. I use it and so far I am liking it and have no need for all of the individual plugins anymore. Thank you for your post about all of the cool stuff you can do with facebook, I really appreciate it!
    Many Blessings!

  • Are there any plug-ins that let me post photos to Facebook FROM WordPress? I know I can sync up blog posts with a page, but they're always attached links. I need a plug-in that will auto-upload whatever the post's featured image is, and post it as an image post on the Facebook wall. Images have a lot more viral potential than link attachments. I'm surprised I haven't found this yet. Anyone else?

      did you found anything?

    You asked whether you missed anything.. Quite frankly, I think you missed WP4FB 2.0 🙂 Have a look at http://wp4fb.com and decide for yourself 😉

    What do you think about the SEO by Yoast plug in? I just started using that tool, and it seems pretty robust. But thanks for these new tools!

    • Cyrus

      The plugin is a good one especially if you get the Video Module too. We use it on many of our sites.
