Creating your first Facebook application
In order to link most of your items on Facebook, Facebook requires that you setup an application with them first. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through on how you can quickly and easily setup your first Facebook application.
Please take note that you are only allowed to create applications using your profile account. Other account types are not allowed to create applications on Facebook.
Step 1 - Accessing Facebook developers page.
First, you'll need to access https://developers.facebook.com/apps. This is the page where Facebook lists down a list of applications that you have already created with them. On the top right corner, click on the button that says Create New App.
Step 2 - Providing Facebook with your App details.
After clicking on the button previously, Facebook would prompt a dialog to request you to give your application a name. You may ignore the other options.
Final Step - Furnishing the application details.
Now, you will need to let Facebook know your real domain URL. The URL cannot be a subdomain and it must be your domain's name. Click on the Website at the bottom and enter your site's URL and hit the Save Changes button.
That's about it! Oh, yes some tips would be helpful.
- If you are deciding to re-brand your domain name, remember to always update the application with your new site URL.
