Magento Social – Connect Facebook

Magento has added the ability to create a Facebook store containing your catalog with just a few clicks.  This was launched in Magento 2.2 Open Source edition. Some things to note are:

  • If you go to the Integrations section in the admin panel, there is a facebook integration already created.  You actually cannot delete this integration – only authorize/reauthorize it.
  • When you connect your store to your facebook page, you are actually signing up for a 3rd party service.
  • The free service only allows for 9 products, but you can upgrade to better plans.
  • The only way to break the integration (from what I could see) is to de-authorize the app from inside Facebook.  It is the “Shopial” app.  I could not figure out how to disable it from the Magento admin panel.

Cool idea.
