Integrating Facebook Comments to Your Webinar – A Step-by-Step Guide
At EasyWebinar, we pride ourselves on making webinars simple and easy to run so you can focus on running your business. EasyWebinar is compatible with tons of email marketing software, apps, and other widgets to make everything run smoothly.
One trick to increase your webinar engagement is using Facebook comments. While we always suggest promoting your live and automated webinars on Facebook (both organically and with ads), the comment section is another feature that can help your performance.
In this post, we’ll show you how to set up comments for more social proof even if you aren’t a “techie.”
How To Integrate Facebook Comments Into Your Webinar
If you’re ready to add Facebook comments into your EasyWebinar event, follow these two easy steps to get started quickly:
Step 1: Get Your API Key
To allow Facebook and EasyWebinar to “talk” we first need to get the API Key. Don’t worry, this isn’t as complicated as it sounds.
To get started, go to developers.facebook.com/apps. If you’ve ever synced up an app in the past with Facebook, you might have already created your own API key. If this is the case, simply copy and paste the App ID/API Key for step number two.
If you have never added an API, follow these steps using your desktop or laptop (this isn’t easy to do on mobile):
- Click “Create New App” in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
- Under “Create New App” create a name for your app (usually the name of your business).
- You can also put this into a category (like finance, business, education, etc.).
- Fill out the captcha security key and you’re all set.
Once you do this, you’ll be redirected to your App ID number.
Step 2: Add App ID to EasyWebinar
Now that you have your App ID, head back over to your EasyWebinar dashboard after logging in. Go to the specific webinar you want to add comments to (automated or live) and select “Event Page” from the top menu. Under “Chat Box Option” choose Facebook.
Paste your App ID into this field and save it on EasyWebinar. To preview this page and make sure it’s working, go to your replay page on the top menu and you should see a Facebook comment section below your video.
This feature will allow webinar attendees to leave a comment and give them an option to post directly to Facebook.
As you can tell, this is a simple and straightforward process to integrate Facebook comments into your webinar presentation. This will help you add more social proof to your webinars, learn more about your attendees and ultimately create a better experience for everyone.
With EasyWebinar, you can easily use Facebook as a chatbox option with only a few clicks.
