In order to obtain a application ID and application secret – both required for many of our posts to work – you must first register a Facebook application. The method for creating the application does vary from time-to-time so we’ll try and keep this page updated to reflect any variances. Of course, if you’re a client, get in touch and we’ll do this for you.
