How to Create a Facebook App for Share Me 2.0
By January 23, 2015 1461 Views No comments

Hello there,

The work on the Share Me 2.0 Magento extension comes to an end. This module is designed to help you promote your store on Facebook by sharing products. To make it work, you should have a Facebook application that will connect your store and the social network. If you used Share Me before, you can just add our images to your app. The link to the file you'll find in the text.

If you don't have a Facebook app, the instruction below will help you to create it. The app doesn't need Facebook approval.

First, register on https://developers.facebook.com/. After that, go to the My Apps tab, and click Add a New App.

In the appeared window, select the Website platform:


Then type the name of your new Facebook app, and click the Create New Facebook App ID button:

In the new window, select No in the Is this a test version of another app? field. Then navigate to the Category option, and choose Promotions and Contents.

Click the Create App ID button.


The app has been created. After clicking Skip Quick Start, you can start configuring the app for its correct work.

Navigate to the Settings tab, and type the contact email of your store in the Contact Email field. Then click Add Platform.


Choose the Website platform:


Type the URL of your store where Share Me! is installed. Click the Save Changes button.

Go to the Status & Review tab. Chose Yes in the field “ Do you want to make this app and all its live features available to the general public".


It is advisable that you provide the description of your app. For this, navigate to the App Details tab and fill out the fields in the App Info form, which are marked on the screenshot below. You can use the following text:

Short Description (copy and paste in the field)
With the help of the application, customers of your_store_url get discounts for their share activity on Facebook.

Long Description (copy and paste in the field)
With the help of the application, customers of your_store_url get discounts for their share activity on Facebook. For sharing a product page, a customer gets a discount on this product. For sharing our store page on Facebook, a customer gets a discount on the whole range of products.


In the Contact Info form, fill out the fields marked on the screenshot:

In the Icons form, upload the icons of your app. You can use the icons as a sample. The images are stored here: http://goo.gl/HFhEdQ. These icons will be displayed on the Facebook app page, and in customers' shared posts on Facebook.

In the Promotional Images form, upload all the necessary images. You can use our images as a sample. The images are stored here: http://goo.gl/HFhEdQ. They are necessary for your app page on Facebook.

Click the Save Changes button.


Your Facebook app is ready for work!

When Share Me 2.0 is released, you should install it to your store. After that, open the app Dashboard and copy the figures from the App ID field. Navigate to the Share Me! configuration page and paste the app ID to the Application ID field in the General section.

Save the settings.



Now your store is connected to the Facebook app. Great!

P.S. We hope that the instruction is easy to follow. But if you face any problems when creating the app, our Support Team will be happy to help you.

Best wishes,
Anastasia Pletneva
