Basic (begginers question about facebook App ID) (2 posts)

    I am helping my friend with her wordpress page, and she would like to use this plugin ( like, share buttons and maybe show few latest facebook status on her wp site).
    I am completely new to facebook apps and confused - just need a help with basic things such as:
    - she has her own facebook page - do I need access to her facebook account to get App ID, App secret and everything to set up this plugin on her site to interact with her facebook page?

    I really need your help to show me the right direction, just to know which way to go ... to have a good start and from there I will know how...

    If I log in to my own facebook account and get the App ID, can I use that ID to set up this plugin for her facebook account, to show her face status on her wordpress site?

    App ID comes from the Facebook developers site. You can create a new application and add your friend as an administrator or she can create the application on her account.

    A Facebook page grants permissions to certain Facebook accounts, including the ability to create content on the page. Your friend can delegate the newly created application to create new content on her behalf. That delegation can only occur from a Facebook account with page permissions.
