Facebook Page Photos in WordPress

Facebook Page PhotosFacebook is becoming as much of a photo sharing site as it is anything else.

Uploading pictures to Facebook offers so many social advantages like the ability to tag friends and comment on photos. This allows your photos to be seen by so many more people than if it were anywhere else.

But what if you also want to have those same photos on your WordPress website? So long as the photos are in a public album, you are in luck.

Facebook Page Photo Gallery is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to add public photo albums to your website with a simple shortcode. All you need is the album ID.

Photos are displayed on your website in much the same way as a standard WordPress photo gallery.

This plugin is meant for those images on Facebook pages as they are public. There is a premium version of this plugin that offers some personal profile photo sharing abilities, Facebook Walleria Plugin.

Since you are using public photos, the album doesn’t even have to be from your Facebook page. It could be from a local event’s Facebook page which makes for easy community blogging for the real estate agent.
