WordPress.com Facebook App

We launched a WordPress.com Facebook App today, feedback has been mostly good, except some good points about how much space it takes up and formatting. It got 4 out of 5 stars on Facereviews. If you have a FB account, please check it out. (It doesn’t work for self-hosted WordPresses yet, but if it’s popular we’ll put more dev into it.)

I’d love a self-hosted WordPress Facebook app; importing my stuff from my blog as notes through RSS is boring in comparison with what I think you beautiful, supreme and Godlike developers might come up with. Please, thrill us!

I was actually thinking about creating an app similiar to this, heck, i had already laid the framework for it. But since your doing it, More power to you 🙂
(and I cant wait for the self-hosted version)

Yeah, I’ll put my request in for a self-hosted WP app as well. I’ve put off installing any Facebook Apps to date because they all seem ugly, useless, or both. A wp.org plugin, though, that would be nice!

I agree. Perhaps support for multiple blogs would be good as well (if it doesn’t already have that).

I’m not sure yet. The notes work OK and I’m being careful which Facebook apps I install. It all seems to be getting very much like Myspace.

The notes work with everybody and everybody can see them.

I run a self-hosted setup and if there are compelling reasons to use the app at all, I’d like a self-hosted app. I’m just not sure it has enough benefit yet.

But you can already import RSS feeds (through notes) and I think this is any blogging platform. I suppose auto comments might be a pull. But the size is rather off-putting. Plus, since this isn’t an app for self hosted blogs,it’s personally not really useful to me.

I’d love to use something OTHER than the existing method of importing an RSS feed into the Facebook “notes,” because it has been a rather hit-and-miss experience for me. Sometimes it will go for weeks without updating. Sidestepping it would be a nice option. (Assuming Feedburner compatibility isn’t a problem, if it’s also RSS based.) I’m not very technically gifted, but I’d jump at the chance to use it on my self-hosted WP blog.

Wait tell me again why you’d want a self-hosted WordPress app for facebook? Like you’d just want wp admin reimplemented as a facebook canvas page?

New tab, people!

The fb API doesn’t give access to the notes functionality (read or publish) so an app is not a way to side-step RSS-to-Note importing.

Self hosted wp users are being neglected. Very unfair …

Hope at least that child like crying helps you offer support for self hosted wp integration to facebook.. 🙂

Please please please make a ‘self hosted wordpress’ version of this app, It is really useful, but currently not useful to me as I host my blog myself…… Pleeeaaassssseeee!!!!

Hey Matt, I created a WordPress plugin called WPBook that mirrors the content of your self-hosted WordPress blog in the Facebook canvas as an application that users can add. Future versions will notify users when you’ve posted new messages, allow users to comment via their Facebook account, etc.

You can download it now from my blog.

I’d love feedback on this.

Great work! I’d really like to have the self-hosted WordPress/Facebook application & will install it immediately! Your work is much appreciated!!! Many thanks in advance!

Yes – I too would like a self hosted blog feed to Facebook!

Thanks in advance guys!!

Yeah, I’ve been thinking along the same lines as Nathan – what would it take to adapt it for self-hosted blogs? I’m sure there are plenty of us out here in userland who’d be willing to do the dirty work…
