  3. A new page will apear.. Click on ‘Create New App’
  4. On the next page you’ve to give your app a name. Fill up the app name box. this name will show up when people share a post in facebook, like ‘via Example App’. For ‘App namespace’ & ‘Web hosting’ box, you won’t need these for this plugin. So, you can just ignore them.
