  3. 3. What is a Facebook Application• A way to interact with the 800 million active users as of July 2011• A way to add interaction onto a Page created on Facebook• Facebook recently changed the way applications work to be using iFrames• Allows Developers to create the page externally• Allows the creation of normal webpages away from Facebook with somegeneric information, e.g. User has liked the page and their minimum age• From the application we can request additional information that we canthen use, e.g. ability to post on walls and their email address
  4. 4. Steps to creating a Facebook Application• A Facebook page where you wish to host the application• A developer account, this can be created on any user account, just log into:https://developers.facebook.com/• From here, create a new application with a name• Input the information to point the application to your website
  5. 5. Steps to creating a Facebook ApplicationFrom the created application there are a few pieces of information that are veryimportant:• The App ID and the Secret key• These allow your hosted site be able to interact with your application• You are able to change other information such as the name, and change the image for the application• To add the application to the page you need the application iFrame location and the application ID: https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id={APPID}&{IFRAME URL}
  6. 6. Steps to creating the Application• Currently there is a Facebook C# SDK that allows a developer to be able to integrate with the Facebook API• There are a few settings that will need to be set in the Web Config• I created my own wrapper class around their SDK to make integrating Facebook easier and more relevant for the applications we create
