After the iOS 6 Facebook integration which we saw in the WWDC 2012 event yesterday, Facebook has finally decided to unveil its official plugin for WordPress now. Released few seconds back, the Facebook for WordPress plugin takes your WordPress powered website to a new social level. The plugin lets you easily integrate Facebook features like social publishing and mentions with your WordPress blog, good thing being that it will be compatible with mobile devices as well!
Here is an excerpt from the official announcement on Facebook made by Matt Kelly, who is an engineer at Facebook:
Once the plugin is installed, you can cross-post content published to WordPress to your Facebook Timeline and the Facebook Pages you manage. You can also mention the names of Pages and friends as you post to further distribute your content.
