Now the big question is how will i make bu blog and Facebook profile to talk to each other. They speak different language how would they communicate and correlate?
WordPress has some amazing plug-ins to ease your job. My pick is “Facebook Comments for WordPress“. This plugin integrates the Facebook commenting system (new, old or both) right into your blog site comment section. 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. Plugin page: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-comments-for-wordpress/
Using this plugin you can have,
- Like button
- FB comments by logged in users
- option to share it in FB
Interaction between any website to facebook required application Id and application secret key. Getting an app Id and secret key is simple too Go to http://www.facebook.com/developers/apps.php click on setup and application submit your domain name URL in the website section. Copy the app ID and key configure them in plugin settings page.
How Facebook will help you to improve Blog readership?
Whole internet world is going towards Social Networking Sites, These platforms offer best sharing mechanism. Your blog post around your friends/contact circle has better chance of getting shared. Every link sharing is additional readership to you. Every like and comment from Facebook is permanent and it will help to have better trust.
