Creating a Facebook Application
Before you can start the integration programming on your website, you have to create a stub Facebook application that will give you the integration parameters required by Facebook Connect.
- After logging into your Facebook account (you need one if you want to develop Facebook Connect applications), open the Developer application and select the Setup New Application option to create the new application. Enter the application's name and agree to the Facebook terms.
- After finalizing the basic form, click the Connect tab to open the form shown in Figure 2, where you can enter the specific information for Facebook Connect.
The next page displays the application editing form shown in Figure 1.
The most important field in this form is Connect URL, which you must set to the directory in which your Facebook Connect application resides. If your application uses more than one directory, you have to enter the one containing the page that communicates with Facebook.
