Have you tried the new Facebook for WordPress plugin yet?

This WordPress plugin makes your site deeply social by integrating functionality from Facebook.

It’s not quite as straightforward as other plugins, so perhaps you’re not sure how to go about setting it up.

Here’s a great video from Jo Barnes of The Social Networking Academy that demonstrates exactly how to set up the Facebook for WordPress plugin.

In the video, Jo shows us where to find the plugin to download the zip file. You can get more information on the Facebook for WordPress plugin and do that HERE.

However, you can also access it by going to Plugins in your WordPress site, Add New and search for Facebook. The plugin should be the first one listed.

If you prefer to read rather than watch a video, Social Media Examiner has an extremely comprehensive post with images on How To Use The New Facebook WordPress Plugin.

Just a word of warning though. I’m finding the plugin to be a bit glitchy at present. I have to deactivate it to write posts as it slows my site down too much.

Also I enabled the Facebook comments, only to find that my CommentLuv disappeared!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Facebook for WordPress plugin.

Do you think it is a good idea?

Have you installed it yet, and if so how is it working for you?

To your success
