If you would like to increase the exposure of your blog WordPress Connect it the perfect plugin for you. It comes with a unique set of tools through which you can reach the largest social networking community on the planet that would engage and then share and discuss your content. It will enable you to build up a fan base and to connect with a wider and a more relevant audience. Now your blog readers with a Facebook account can post comments, create discussions and like your posts and pages.

The plugin integrates Facebook Social plugins with WordPress. It provides tools to add the Facebook Like Button and Facebook Comments automatically to every post and page. Of course, the user has a full control over settings such as width, font, color scheme, etc.

WordPress Connect also provides fully customizable WordPress Widgets for the following Facebook Social Plugins

  • Activity Widget
  • Comments Widget
  • Facepile Widget
  • Like Box Widget
  • Like Button Widget
  • Live Stream Widget
  • Login Widget
  • Recommendation Widget
  • Send Button Widget

The widgets can be added to your blog just as easy as any other WordPress Widget, i.e. through the widgets page (under Appearance on your Dashboard).

Since 2.0, all WordPress Connect widgets are rendered in the XFBML mode (i.e no iframes) to provide full functionality the iframe versions may lack.

A big addition since 2.0 is a simple yet powerful API for plugin and theme developers who can now specify default settings for WordPress Connect to reflect the needs of their plugin/theme. The API provides an easy way to include any widget (such as the Like Button of Comments) anywhere in the theme, e.g. to add the Like Button to the header or Comments to the footer.
