    Is there any plugin that can post automatically from blog to facebook? *cross posting* thx

    • Paul says:

      Good timing to read this, just posted about this on another site I was reading: http://nowsci.com/wordpress2facebook/

      It even puts the post picture into the wall, but does require a computer running.

  8. kamila says:

    yes exactly same question -is there a plugin that will allow to push wordpress posts into facebook automatically? (found one for twitter but dont seem to be able to find a facebook one…)

    • Moshe Neeman says:

      Great list – thanks!

      Same question, again…

      “is there a plugin that will allow to push wordpress posts into facebook automatically?”

      WP to Twitter automatically generates a tweet for each WP post – and does so easily and reliably.

      The same for Facebook, with the necessary adjustments, would be great.

      Does it exist?

      Thanks again,

    Hi,

    When you use Facebook comments on your blog, are you denying your readers the opportunity to get a backlink which is their main incentive to blog in the first instance?

    Would be interested to hear your opinion.

    Thanks.

  22. Web Services says:

  27. ziga says:

    Are there any new plugins for the fb comment integration?? This seems to be a waste of time, because of so many steps involved… Any plug and play plugins availible yet?? So you can link to fb an just drag a widget to your sidebar??? This would make sense tho :/

    cheers!

    Thanks for the info…I need it. Hope I can get many traffic from Facebook :)

  29. 509 Media says:

    Thanks for the post. I am messing around with the Developer Apps to add links back to my wordpress page.

    I have to agree with one of the posters above in regard to people posting on your blog. Many people take the time to post to create a back link to the site. I would also like to hear if the number of comments left on a blog go down if the comments are being posted from Facebook.
