Facebook Posts (beta) is the latest of our Facebook Modules. With this module you may pull the actual Facebook posts of a user into your app.
Prerequisites: A Facebook account and a Facebook Developer account
- To sign up for a Facebook Account, go to https://facebook.com and join or sign in. You must be logged into your Facebook account in order to become a Facebook Developer
- To sign up for a Facebook Developer account, go to https://developers.facebook.com and click the Register Link in the right top corner.
Adding an App
Step 1: Login to https://developers.facebook.com and click on My Apps (top right corner in the same place the “register” link existed prior to becoming a developer).
Step 2: In the drop-down menu, select Add a New App. (If you have added other apps, these will be listed here.)
Step 3: In the popup window that opens, Select the Website Option.
Step 4: Click to create a new Facebook App ID. You can name it anything you’d like to call it. If you already have existing apps, these will be displayed as well.
Step 5: Once you give the app a name, scroll down the page that opens and insert your website URL. This is required, however, it can be any website you own — a blog, for example, or a subdomain site.
Step 6: Click the NEXT button.
Step 7: You are finished. Now, scroll back to the top of the screen and click on your My Apps link. The app you just created should appear in the list.
Step 8: Click on that app. Now you will see the Secret Key and the App ID. Click to Show the Secret Key. Copy those two numbers.
Step 9: Paste the App ID and the App Secret number into your Facebook Post Skybuilder Module.
Step 10: To obtain the User or Group ID, open the page in Facebook and copy the name at the end of the Facebook URL. Examples:
https://www.facebook.com/Braves (the Facebook ID for the app module is Braves)
https://www.facebook.com/RedSox/ (the Facebook ID for the app module is RedSox)
https://www.facebook.com/sportsnet/ (the Facebook ID for the app module is sportsnet)
