We launched 4 new Facebook widgets!
You may have already seen that Facebook announced their plans to “make the web more social”. Along with these plans, they also announced that they will be making various Facebook features available on other websites. Well, Webs is proud to announce that we will be making these features available on your sites, today!
The widgets available now are:
This widget allows your users to post comments on your site. These comments will then show up on their Facebook News Feed, as well as their friends’ News Feed.
The Activity Feed displays the most interesting recent activity taking place on your site. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the widget can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site.
Fan Page Box
The Like Box enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to:
- See how many users already like this page, and which of their friends like it too
- Read recent posts from the page
- Like the page with one click, without needing to visit the page
Adds a like button to your page that will count “likes” and shares to Facebook. Your users will “like” pages on your site and their friends’ on Facebook will be able to see this and visit your site as well.
