Create a Facebook App ID

Before you can use any Facebook related block in Elementor you must first create a Facebook developer account. You can find clear steps on how to setup a Facebook developer account here.

Once you are a registered developer you must create a Facebook App to generate a Facebook API and access token using these easy to follow steps. This is necessary to connect your Elementor blocks to your specific Facebook page.

Now that you have a Facebook App ID you can add the code under the Elementor Settings, Integrations tab.

As a busy business owner you most likely only update your websites information once or twice a year, focusing on your new products or hours of operations. A website with current updates are far more likely to show up in a Google Search ranking, as the search engine sees your website as a more up-to-date version. Most businesses can take a few moments a day to post their latest and greatest to their Facebook page, Elementor has a great way to automatically add your latest Facebook posts to your website tricking the search engine into thinking your webpage has been updated, killing two birds with one stone, what and can be a great timesaver.
