    One of the problems is that October 1st Facebook requires all apps to use secure hosting (https) that killed a lot of the good WPBook installs out there (including mine) as it’s not worth the extra money just for the facebook app. However, here is a screenshot from John’s Blog showing what should happen when viewing the blog inside and outside of Facebook.

    Hope that sorta helps.

    Yeah, that’s super helpful. Thanks.

    Yeah, it’s tough to decide whether to invest in the Facebook app. If I knew and could see examples of blogs where this was being successful/fruitful/clearly worth it, I’d probably advance that project. Otherwise probably not. When I look it up, FB tells me that Open Parenthesis (his blog) only has 20 monthly users… (read: not worth it). But that could well be because it’s just a place for him to demo it and he’s not that into his blog as an actual public place.

    But the plugin’s got good ratings and lots of use…

    I guess I’d need to see like a gallery/showcase of real-world successes or something to that effect before picking it up myself.

    Here’s mine: http://apps.facebook.com/openparenthesis/

    Note the non https url – I don’t even have my own working in https mode as I’ve never seen the need.

    WPBook Lite may worth exploring as well – that doesn’t expose the facebook app view and instead just cross-posts new blog posts to facebook and imports comments made against them.

    Successful examples there you might never know are WPBook.
