I’v had a few requests to update this tutorial, most of the information below can be still used so I’ll just leave it there. Just like before go to the Facebook App Developers page. You’ll notice that it’s a little different from before, in the top right corner click Add New App then select Website.
Here’s the tricky part… Think of an app name and click Create New Facebook App ID once that is done you will be asked to select a Category, I selected Utility, you can choose whatever you think would be relevant. Click Create App ID and next up you’ll be able to see your app_id=.
Then all you need to do is write the website you want to link the app with and now click Next. At the top of the next page click Skip Quick Start, and theres your app complete. If you’d like to change the image you see for your app click App Details on the left hand side and scroll down until you see the Icons heading and upload your 1024×1024 and 16×16 icons and click Save.
Here’s a really simple way to create your own posted via anything app for Facebook. The first thing you need to do is to create a new app on the Facebook App Developers page. Click +Create App in the top right hand corner and a box will appear asking for the App Name. The app name you choose will appear as the posted from device.
Click Continue and fill in the necessary boxes as it says. You don’t need to fill them all in, just the following:
– App Name
– Contact Email (your email address)
– User Support Email (your email address again)
Under the App Images section change the Icon to whatever you wish to be placed on the posted via part of your status.
After all this is done click Save Changes, then you are ready to post via your chosen device. Copy your App ID from the top of the page and replace the red text from the following URL
Just simply copy and paste this into your address bar with your App ID and write your status. Have fun!
To insert a link/image into your status update or post you need the following variables:
app_id= Your application’s identifier. Required, but automatically specified by most SDKs.
link= The link attached to this post
picture= The URL of a picture attached to this post.
name= The name of the link attachment.
caption=The caption of the link (appears beneath the link name).
description= The description of the link (appears beneath the link caption).
redirect_uri= The URL to redirect to after the user clicks a button on the dialog.
Here’s an example of how to use these basic commands to create a link and image in your custom post via dialogue box.
This is the code that the image above uses.
After every command and your data such as app_id=133422723344980 you will need to add an & symbol at the end for the next command to work. When writing the name, description or anything that requires a space added, such as Posted Via Anything – Facebook Tutorial will need to be written as Posted%20Via%20Anything%20-%20Facebook%20Tutorial as a space is %20
There are more options for more functionality if needed, and more information can be found at the Facebook Developers page.
