With the new plugin, you can perform sophisticated auto-publishing to your Timeline and add many Facebook features to your self-hosted WordPress blog. (This plugin does not work on blogs hosted on WordPress.com.)
This makes advanced Facebook social sharing features accessible to everyone.
This detailed article tells you how to install and use this powerful plugin.
#1: Install the Facebook Plugin on Your Blog
From inside your WordPress admin dashboard, go to the Plugin section and search for “Facebook.” The Facebook plugin for WordPress should appear at the top of the search results.
Should you open your personal profile with a Facebook Subscribe button? Would a Facebook Group work well for your business?
The simple truth is that Facebook Pages are not being seen as often in the news feed.
Facebook reported that on average, brands reach about 16% of their fans in a typical week through posts. This news has many people wondering if Pages are still a worthwhile endeavor.
Find out how to choose the best marketing strategy that fits your business by answering these simple questions.
#1: Have multiple employees?
If so, I still recommend having a Facebook Page despite the visibility issues. Let’s face it; every marketing channel has visibility issues. You will never reach 100% of your customers all of the time. Facebook Pages have advantages for your business that Groups and the Subscribe button don’t.
With the addition of the Facebook Subscribe button, understanding how your Facebook privacy works is more important than ever.
The good news is that Facebook is making it simpler to find the settings for controlling your privacy.
The bad news is that there’s a lot of confusion around the Subscribe button and what it means for privacy. So let’s start by tackling the privacy issues around the new Subscribe button.
#1: The Facebook Subscribe button
Facebook has made the subscribe setting opt-in instead of defaulted to on. The Subscribe button is designed to allow people to subscribe to your public posts rather than (or possibly in addition to) requesting a friendship. It’s a lot like a Twitter follow. You don’t approve subscribers. All of your current friends are, by default, subscribed to your posts.

It’s been quite a rollercoaster recently with all the new Facebook changes. Some changes have already happened (i.e., News Feed and the new Smart Lists) and other changes will be coming as a result of the Facebook F8 conference.
