Hi, I'm Kerianne Mellott from I'm a Marketing Coach and a Social Media Expert. Facebook encourages developers to use their tools to help seamlessly integrate their third party apps, websites and other platforms so that it all works together. Their whole goal is to make your website more social. This video is going to explain the different ways that you can link to your site from Facebook with permission. Some of these information requires technical know-how and also requirement of knowing code such as PHP and Javascript and HTML. So, if you're not familiar, make sure you get the expertise from someone who has worked on Facebook platforms in the past. The first way that you can use a Facebook tool is to actually use a social plug in. An example of this would be like the like button that you would see on a website that directs people automatically and likes your Facebook page. The second is using their login button or registration button. This tool makes it easy for your users to sign into or access your website, instead of building an entire separate form, Facebook gives you the code to use in their pre-written configurator. After you add the appropriate code to the site, as long as a user is signed into Facebook, they're automatically signed into your site as well. The third tool is the open graph API. This gives developers access to the full social graph of a given user and allows for an even deeper user experience with Facebook and your website or app; copy and paste whatever code you'll need. I'm Kerianne Mellott from and I'll see you again somewhere online.
