facebook apisFacebook is thriving with opportunities and that requires you to have a presence in this ever-expanding social platform. But what about changing the course altogether, I mean integrating Facebook into your website. By doing so, you will be reciprocating the love and it will be going to have a larger and more powerful impact on your online presence. And for this, you do not need to reinvest the wheel, there are some easy to use plugins available and all you need to do is to use them to your advantages. To make your job easier, here we are going to share a list of some of those plugins:

Like Button: Facebook has become synonymous with Like Button. This button will let users share snippet of your page directly into their Facebook profile pages and that too with one single click. Whenever a user click on the Like button, a story gets shared on the news feed of the user and you will get a link back to your website. Once the page is Liked, your page will be featured in the like and interest section of the users’ profile. Moreover, with this you are armed with a new opportunity to make the users (who liked the page) to publish update to them.

Send Button: With Send button, users can now easily send update and content to their friends. By integrating this button to your website, you will be offering your visitors a unique opportunity to send the URL in the form of a message to their friends available in Facebook or to the group wall of their Facebook group. There is a fundamental difference between Like button and Share button. With Like button users can share content with their friends whereas Send Button enables them send private message to their friends. The message generally includes a URL along with title, image and a short description about the page.

Subscribed Button: By adding this button, your users will be able to get subscribed to all the updates of your blog on Facebook. Subscribed Button can be implemented in two ways – XFBML and Iframe. XFBML is certainly more powerful than its counterpart and it is also available in HTML5-compliant markup. However, it requires JavaScript SDK. Other than this, XFBML version comes with additional benefits that include ability to dynamically re-size height of the button depending on whether or not you are wiling to make profile picture visible.

Comment: This is another powerful Facebook plugin that revolutionize the way comments were made. This plugin makes it easier for Facebook users comment on your site. No more captcha or form. Simple, direct and dynamic. Comments are usually ordered to display the most recent comments from friends, and you will have options to mark any comments spam and it will be hidden from view.

Activity Feed: This is the best way you can inform the readers which is the most trending topic in your website or which post is getting maximum attention, and thereby you will be able to increase the curiosity level of the visitors. Activity Feed plugin displays the activities taking place in your website in real time and when users are logged in, it will customize the activity fields by highlighting content from his or her friend circle.

Faceplie: If you want to show your gratitude to those who have liked your page by featuring their profile picture in your blog, Facepile plugin is the way to salvage.
