Integrating Facebook in ASP Website using C# SDK

If you like it or hate it, you can't get away with the fact that Facebook is present all over the web. Whether it's a complex web application or just a news blog, every site uses Facebook for driving traffic. Integrating your web app or website with Facebook is easy and free. Apart from driving traffic to your site it also makes your web site more social and tailored for the users. You can access user's data from Facebook to simplify or eliminate your own user registration process. If you have a asp.net website you can use Facebook C# SDK for integrating Facebook within your website/web application.

Creating a Facebook App
First of all we need to create an app through which the website will connect with users.
  1. Visit https://developers.facebook.com/apps and click on 'Create New App'.
  2. Fill in the desired App Name and Namespace. Remember these must be unique.
  3. On the basic settings page look for 'Select how your app integrates with Facebook' section and choose 'Website with Facebook Login'.
  4. In the Site URL field, enter your site address. I am working locally, so I added http://localhost:8779/ (Don't forget to put a trailing '/').
Note: Facebook keeps changing the developer interface. So, may be when you're reading this post you have to go through a different set of steps while a creating a new app and configuring it.
