[Plugin: Add Link to Facebook] Cannot "Create new app" on Facebook Business Page (2 posts)

    We have a corporate website http://www.spadental.co.uk which has WordPress 3.4.1 installed and working fine.

    I am now trying to install the Plugin Add Link to Facebook but this requires that I a Create new app on Facebook. (See instructions).

    THE PROBLEM!

    The Facebook site http://www.facebook.com/spadentalgroup is a Business Page (or Fan Page) therefore there is no ability to "Create new app", this functionality is just not available.

    We have the plugin Twitter Tools installed which automatically creates all our blogs as tweets at https://twitter.com/spadental and is working fine. The Twitter site then automatically updates our SpaDental business page on Facebook. All of these links were easy to install and work perfectly.

    I do not understand why I have to Create an app for this Plugin whereas the links from:
    - Twitter
    - Stack Overflow
    - Stack Exchange
    - YouTube
    did not require me to "Create an app".

    How do I proceed with the installation of Add Link to Facebook?

    Thanks, getting very frustrated!

    Detatils:
    WordPress installation: 3.4.1
    Plugin: Add Link to Facebook: 1.163
    Site: http://www.spadental.co.uk/blog
    Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/spadentalgroup
