    Demo

     

    Facebook announced Live Stream plugin will be removed on October 3, 2012. On October 3, 2012, if you are still utilizing the Live Stream plugin, the Comments Box Plugin will be rendered instead. While the Comments Box plugin offers similar functionality, there are a few differences:
    - Live Stream allowed you to specify an xid so that you may have multiple plugins on the same page. Comments box does not allow this.
    - Comments Box does not have a 'via attribution url' to specify where outbound clicks should go.
    - Comments Box requires a refresh for updates

    The Live Stream module lets users visiting your site share activity and comments in real time. The Live Stream Box works best when you are running a real-time event, like live streaming video for concerts, speeches, or webcasts, live Web chats, webinars, massively multiplayer games.

    How to create a Facebook Application

    To use Facebook extensions you need to create a Facebook Application and get an Application ID.

    Application ID is needed if you are using JavaScript SDK plugin. You can find JavaScriptSDK settings by going to Extensions > Plugins Manager and then clicking on System - JavaScript SDK.

    API key is needed if you are using Fanbox/Likebox. You will also need Page ID for Fanbox/Likebox that you can copy from your Facebook Page URL. Here is a Tutorial for How to create a Facebook Page.

    You can manage your created application in Developer Dashboard. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for Facebook to get ready your Application ID to use.
