WPBook Updated: WordPress Facebook Plugin

WPBook, the WordPress plugin which lets you bring your blog posts into facebook, has been updated to version 0.8.1. (You can view this very blog in Facebook as an example, assuming you’re not doing so already).

The main updates were in the 0.8 release yesterday (0.8.1 is just a bug fix to that release). In 0.8, you have the option to enable an “Invite Friends” link. See this section of the admin panel:

If that’s enabled, you’ll see something like this inside your facebook app:

People can use this to invite their friends to your facebook app. (Of course you can also use it to invite your friends to your own app – 15 per day).

Grab the updated version from the WordPress Plugin Directory or directly from here.

If you’re interested in getting involved in development / support of this plugin and others (especially related to educational use of WordPress), check out Scholarpress.


  1. Just a quick note, Either Facebook upped the amount of invites you can send a day or this is on a progressive system. I started out with 15 invites a day but now i am able to send up to 30. I don’t know when or why this happened just that it did.

    Thanks for the update John!


  2. Hi John,
    I just wish it was something that was available at wordpress.com for use. Self-hosting is not an option for me atm hence the blog at http://www.wordpress.com . See if in someway this can be integrated at wordpress.com, this way its a win-win situation for everybody concerned, facebook doesn’t lose it audience and people have more of an audience.

    Looking forward to hearing from you on the same.
