    Demo

    The KA Facebook Recommendations shows personalized recommendations to your users. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the plugin can display personalized recommendations whether or not the user has logged into your site. To generate the recommendations, the plugin considers all the social interactions with URLs from your site. For a logged in Facebook user, the plugin will give preference to and highlight objects her friends have interacted with.

    You specify a site for which to show recommendations for. The domain is matched exactly, so a plugin with site=facebook.com would not include URLs from developers.facebook.com. You cannot currently aggregate across multiple domains.

    Installation:

    Please install module(mod_kafbrecommendations.zip) and plugin(plg_javascriptsdk.zip). Both are required to make Facebook Recomendations work. If you already have plugin(plg_javascriptsdk.zip) installed then only install the module(mod_kafbrecommendations.zip).

    To create an Application please read How to create a Facebook Application. Once you have the Application ID, paste it in your JavaScriptSDK plugin and Publish and Save it.

    1. First make note of settings of already installed version.
    2. Then uninstall old version and install new version by going to Extensions > Install/Uninstall in Joomla backend.

    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.
