Turn Blog Post into Facebook Fan Page
With Facebook’s new Social Graph, you can turn your Blog posts into admin pages.
What this means:
Facebook will create a page that you are an administrator of. All other users are directed to the actual blog post, but the admin is directed to the Facebook admin page so they can manage their fans and publish stories to their fans’ News Feeds.
Some other things that take place:
- blog post will show up in Facebook search results
- Facebook users are directed to your blog which is counted as a back-link from Facebook
The following HTML tags in your header file:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
The following minimum of facebook’s Open Graph <meta> tags in your header file:
<meta property="fb:admins" content="YOUR_FACEBOOK_USER_ID" />
<meta property="og:type" content="blog" />
<meta property="og:image" content="LINK_TO_AN_IMAGE_ON_YOUR_SERVER" />
By facebook userID we mean your numerical userID, not your screen name.
Make sure you use the correct facebook user ID, because you cannot change it once people started liking your post: you can only append it, but you cannot change it.
Don’t forget to Like your own post/page (when logged into facebook as the same user), only then will facebook create the actual facebook page from your post.
You can tell the page is available because next to your Like button you will see a link to the Admin Page (only of you chose “standard” in the button layout).
As soon as this (Admin) Page is available, a link to its Insight location is available via the plugin, right next to the Like and Share counts, from which you get to the actual page (by clicking on the logo).
