In the celebration of the newest plugin addition to our WordPress plugins database – I figured it would be a nice idea to put together a list of seven Facebook plugins that will rock your world in 2014.
Facebook has really grown in the past couple of years, not only user wise, almost every business in the world understands the importance of having a business page (or at least a fan page). The community engagement that Facebook brings to the table isn’t something that can be easily harvested, you have to work hard and show the people that you are the real deal.
vBSocial will help you move away from Facebook by allowing you to integrate your very own Facebook like pages into your WordPress blog.
It appears that Facebook has teamed up with the Russian search engine Yandex, to help Yandex deliver better results to their users, because of “deals” like this I tend to lose my trust and respect for Facebook, it just goes to show how mainstream our own personal data can go. Though, we all agree to the terms of service when we signup, don’t we?
This might not be a direct Facebook plugin, but I felt it’s worth mentioning on this list because of how awesome it is and how it is going to change the way people interact on your website. Everyone loves to have their own personal space on a website, a corner where they can let their creativity run wild. This is exactly what vBSocial Pages is going to deliver to your community.

The link title will be the post title. The link description will be the excerpt, or part of the post text if there is none. It is possible to configure a link image (WordPress icon, first image in the media library or in the text, featured image, avatar of the author or custom image) or you can let Facebook select one automatically. It is possible to exclude individual post links from being added to your wall, pages or groups by ticking a check box just above the publish button.
