  5. Next, configure the Facebook app to work for sharing on the domain name that you will be hosting the campaign on. You just need to add "yourdomain.com" in the "App Domains" field on the settings page.

  6. That's it for facebook settings! Copy the new APPID that was created for you and add this to the Facebook AppID field in Console
