    Question Regarding Facebook

    Hello,

    I am hoping someone is able to put me straight on exactly what I need to do. One thing has lead into another, which has now lead me clueless on what I need to do.

    If you click this example, it'll take you to Facebook. This has been taken from the Facebook Feed Dialog page. To use this link, you need an app_id, of which, I do not have. The description says for the app_id "Your application's identifier. Required, but automatically specified by most SDKs." so I looked this up.

    After looking up the SDK, I was completely lost and I am now at a dead end on what to do. Eventually, there'll be a lot of these share buttons, log in with Facebook and whatnot and presume this also has to do this the SDK too? I do not have or intend on having an application, just a fan page, of which I would like to link with any shares from any of the sites content, see graphs and whatnot.

    What exactly am I meant to be doing, how do I get an SDK/app_id for my website?

    Best Regards,
    Tim

    Perhaps you could describe what it is you are trying to accomplish?

    I thought I had?...

    Basically, the example link I'd like to have all over my website so people can share pages, however, the link requires an app_id which I do not have.

    I've looked into things, and through apps you can see statistics of your page shares and whatnot which I'd like to see, instead of the user just liking a page, it adds to the fan page I have on Facebook.

    I am not 100% sure how to describe myself... I also want to have 'Log in with Facebook' eventually and might need an app_id too?
