Facebook Integration

There are a number of ways you can allow viewers to interact with your Facebook account or their own Facebook account, right from within your ProPhoto blog.

Viewers Interacting with THEIR OWN Facebook Account

There are a number of Facebook tools that you can provide to your blog viewers so that they can interact with their own Facebook account from right within your blog.  Some of the most popular are the Facebook “Like”  and  “Share” Buttons and Facebook comments, all of which are based on Facebook’s functionality.

~Facebook Like Button

We have built the “Like” button right into the ProPhoto theme so that you can include it at the button of each of your posts in the post footer or in the call to action area. It should be noted that Facebook controls the functionality of how this “button” works.  So the names and/or pictures of who “likes” your post is not determined by the ProPhoto theme, it’s how Facebook has it set up.

~Facebook Share Button

ProPhoto has made both the Facebook share and  like functionality options in the “call to action” area that can be enabled at the bottom of each post.

~Viewers leaving Facebook Comments

WordPress provides a built-in commenting system for Pages and Post so that your visitors can interact with your site by leaving a public message/comment below your content.

Facebook also provides a tool that website owners can embed into their sites so that visitors can comment in a more-social way – comments will show on your website, and also show on the Facebook page of your visitors.

Other Options

~Crossposting

Sometimes, people want their Facebook feed to update every time a new blog post is made.  That way, Facebook friends will be able to see when a new blog post has been made and can click to it, all right from within Facebook.  To accomplish this, you will need to use a WordPress plugin.  One that can for sure do this, but does not get good reviews is the official Facebook plugin called “Facebook” in the WordPress repository. There may be other options and you can “Plugins” > “Add new” to search. Be aware that you should test your site after installing any plugin – and with plugins related to Facebook, be sure that the plugin you choose doesn’t break any built-in features ProPhoto provides, such as the Like button or commenting system.

~Displaying your Facebook feed

You can also use WordPress plugins to display a feed of your Facebook activity in one of your widget areas.  ““FBF Facebook page Feed Widget” is an example of a plugin that provides that functionality.

Viewers Interacting with YOUR Facebook Account

Using Facebook functionality, we have incorporated a Facebook Page widget right into the ProPhoto theme so that you can provide a “window” from your ProPhoto blog to your Facebook fan page.  When a viewer sees the Page widget, they’ll actually see a portion of your Facebook fan page and can link to the page by clicking on it.

We’ve also included a Facebook Icon Widget so that you can provide your viewers a “clickable” Facebook icon that will take them right to your Facebook page.

The Facebook “Like” Button allows viewers to “like” a blog post, which will then be displayed both on your post and on their own Facebook page.  Using Facebook’s functionality of the “Like” Button, we have built it right into the ProPhoto theme so that you can include the button right within the footer of each of your posts.  It should be noted that Facebook controls the functionality of how this “button” works.  So how the names and/or pictures of who “likes” your post is not determined by the ProPhoto theme, it’s how Facebook has it set up.
