Facebook Setup

If you want to use Facebook Login in the Media Community, you'll have to first create a Facebook Application.

  1. Login to the Facebook developer section and create a new application.

  2. You should arrive in the Settings > Basic section, where you can edit your app icon and name. These elements show up when users login to your site with Facebook for the first time.

  3. In the Website section below, enter the public URL of your Media Community website. If you have more than one URL, you'll need multiple Facebook Apps for login.
  4. Copy the App ID and App Secret keys and paste them into your Media Community application settings. See Responding Domains above.
  5. Go to the Setting > Advanced section and make sure that you have a support email entered. This is a Facebook requirement.

When a user submits an entry or adds a comment, they are prompted to add it to Facebook. You can change the default text that appears in the "entry" category of the Translator.

Tip: Create a Facebook alter-ego for testing

You are going to be testing the behaviour and copy of messages shared to Facebook. In order to avoid annoying your friends and spoiling the surprise for your sponsor, create a second or third Facebook account. Connect your alter-egos so you can see what the feed messages will look like.
