Earlier this year, the Facebook Page Plugin took the place of the Like Box plugin. Today, Facebook announced some new events and messages features.
With the messages integration, people can message your business from your website.
“This allows you to bring the conversations you have with people on Facebook to other places on the web and on mobile,” says Facebook’s Yugal Jindle. “For example, if you’re a local shop owner, people can start a dialogue about a purchase order on your Facebook Page or on your website via the messages tab.”
You can find the developer documentation here.
“55 million public events were created on Facebook last year, helping people to connect in the real world,” says Jindle. “Event organizers and promoters have told us that they’d like a more integrated experience managing their events on and off Facebook. With events in the Page plugin, people can now discover and interact with events from your Page, right on your website. For example, if you’re promoting an upcoming concert, you can create an event from your Page and feature it on your website, while managing the details from one place.”
The integration gives you a single place to manage event details, subscribe functionality, a more social events calendar, and a localized experience.
