  3. To create a Facebook app, click on Apps on the top of the page and select ‘Create a New App’.
    This will create a popup box will prompt you to enter two things:

    • An display name.This is the app name used when stories are published to Facebook and in a number of other places.
    • Use Open Graph Getting Started or something similar.
    • A namespace. Not required for this guide so just leave it blank
    • A category.This will determine the kind of app that you’re building. For now, just select Communication.
  4. Once you’ve created your app you’ll be provided with a dashboard that shows User and API Stats. From this screen, click on Settings on the left.

  5. If you have any troubles creating the app or for more in depth information please visit https://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/getting-started/

Can I use the regular Like Button with my Facebook Page

Yes. This can be useful if you need a more compact layout than the Like Box can provide.

How can I allow people to like my webpages?

This Like Box is designed only for use with Facebook Pages. For any other purposes you should use the Like Button

How do I know when someone clicked on a Like button on my site?

The XFBML and HTML5 versions of the button allow you to subscribe to the ‘edge.create’ event in the Facebook SDK for JavaScript through FB.Event.subscribe. This JavaScript event will fire any time a button is clicked.
