How do I register Facebook account(s) for my website(s)?

I've noticed lots of my favorite web sites also have a Facebook site with an address like facebook.com/myfavoritesite.

How do I register Facebook account(s) for my site(s)? Do I simply create a regular Facebook account using an email address for my site or is there a special type of FB account I need to register for this?

I recall trying a few years back and getting confused because FB insisted on me using a first and last name instead of a website title.

Thanks

It's a little involved to use their FB information for login, but you do need to create an APP for a page. Here is the documentation with step by step.

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/v2.3
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/login-flow-for-web/v2.3

I will say that basically you'd have to receive the OK back from Facebook in a JSON object and use that to post with AJAX back to your database with the information about that user you pull from facebook with that login. Then they basically are using OAuth to authenticate to your page.

Hello,

You can't create account using your website name, instead you can create a Facebook Page for your website, there you can use your company name in the Name field.

Hope that helps

What you are looking to do is setup a Facebook Page, Edwin posted the link to create a Facebook Page above.

In order to setup a Facebook Page, you need to have a personal Facebook account first. Once you have your personal account setup, you can create Pages. You can also assign Administrators, Editors, etc to the page, so it can be managed by a team.
