Setting Up Facebook

To post to Facebook you need to create a Facebook app. This tutorial will walk you through all of the required steps.

Once you have created the app you will need the ID of the app, which is added directly into the ‘Settings’ section in MemeCrusher.

Note: When selecting a name for your app do not use the word ‘Facebook’ in it. This is a trademarked term.
