  • The Activity Feed plugin displays the most interesting recent activity taking place on your site. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. The activity feed displays stories both when users like content on your site and when users share content from your site back to Facebook. If a user is logged into Facebook, the plugin will be personalized to highlight content from their friends. If the user is logged out, the activity feed will show recommendations from your site, and give the user the option to log in to Facebook.The plugin is filled with activity from the user&apos;s friends. If there isn&apos;t enough friend activity to fill the plugin, it is backfilled with recommendations.
  • Shows most Liked things on the site. The Recommendations plugin shows personalized recommendations to your users. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized recommendations whether or not the user has logged into your site. To generate the recommendations, the plugin considers all the social interactions with URLs from your site. For a logged in Facebook user, the plugin will give preference to and highlight objects her friends have interacted with.
  • The Comments Box easily enables your users to comment on your site&apos;s content — whether it&apos;s for a web page, article, photo, or other piece of content. Then the user can share the comment on Facebook on their Wall and in their friends&apos; streams.
  • The Live Stream plugin lets users visiting your site or application share activity and comments in real time. Live Stream works best when you are running a real-time event, like live streaming video for concerts, speeches, or webcasts, live Web chats, webinars, massively multiplayer games.
  • The Login Button shows profile pictures of the user&apos;s friends who have already signed up for your site in addition to a login button. By default the Login button prompts users for their public information. If your application needs to access other parts of the user&apos;s profile that may be private, your application can request extended permissions. A complete list of extended permissions can be found at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/permissions/.
  • But first, some definitions: every item that shows up in your News Feed is considered an Object. If you have an Object in the News Feed (say, a status update), whenever another user interacts with that Object they’re creating what Facebook calls an Edge, which includes actions like tags and comments. EdgeRank is Facebook’s formula for determining which content items from all of those friends and Pages are most relevant to you at any one time. Those posts will then display in your News Feed.
  • The more interactive through likes, tags, comments, more likely it is to show up in Top News feeds. Likes can turn into Shares with a comment. Shares have more weight.

  • Tracked avg. donation on our site for same time period was $60.55. Average Facebook donation was $35.74. $35.74 x number of returning visitors. Divide that number by total shares (11,233) = $10.87
