    what exactly is the difference between these two:

    Automatically Publish to Facebook Application: (Note: This does not work due to a Facebook bug.)
    
    Automatically Publish to Facebook Profile:

    Regarding the share button:

    I would like to manually incldue it:

    ┬┤Manually add the button to your theme or posts (use the sfc_share_button function in your theme, or the [fb-share] shortcode in your posts)┬┤

    where exactly can I find more details about the shortcode or the php function? how do I pass argumetns? what possible argumets are there? I'd like to include a button count via php function into my theme...

    Just look at the plugin code. It is relatively simple.

    If you want to put a button count share into your theme somewhere, then you can do this:
    sfc_share_button('button_count');

    It'll assume the current post. If you want to use a different post ID, use that as the second parameter:
    sfc_share_button('button_count', 123);

    Well, the automatic Publish is like the manual Publish, except it happens automatically. :)

    When you make a new Post, if you have those checked, then it will try to Publish the fact that you made a new post to the facebook app or your own personal profile. The app publishing doesn't work because Facebook lacks the ability for me to do that sort of thing automatically (for now). The profile publishing piece works fine.

    no I meant the difference between publishing to my profile or to my app :-(

    Basically what I am looking for is to get more exposure, by showing what is happening on my blog on my FB profile too, so that would be the right place to publish to?

    oh and does the share button do the same as publishing onto my profile (manually or automatically) ?

    regarding the bookmark widget: it only shows the widget title and nothing else, here is the source code output. any ideas?

    <div class="widget-inside"><h3 class="widget-title">Bookmark this entry</h3><fb:bookmark type="off-facebook"></fb:bookmark> </div>

    just published a first post from my blog to my app - now where does it show up as I can't fidn it anywhere on my profile :-(

    sorry for these basic questions, but still struggling.

    besides, is there anything one needs to do except create this app and insert the keys in this plugin's settigns?
