Facebook Development 101

Integration Types

As a developer you can integrate with Facebook using FaceSharp in a number of ways:

Graph API

Exploring the Graph API has never been easier with the following tools:

Fan Pages

  • Visit the Ads and Pages App to create a new page.
  • You can set a User Name (i.e. http://www.facebook.com/<<username>> for the page after you reach 25 fans
  • To add a tab to fan page use the following URL:
    • https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?appid=YOURAPPID&display=popup&next=YOURURL

Test Accounts

Facebook provides an API for setting up test accounts, these accounts can be shared across applications. A maximum of 100 test users can be created per application.

Social Plugins
