Webflow Facebook Integration
Facebook lets you integrate like, share, and other buttons and plugins to your Webflow site.
Facebook, a prominent social media platform founded by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, has revolutionized digital interaction and online communities. With billions of users worldwide, it offers various features like status updates, photo sharing, messaging, and more. Facebook has become a hub for social networking, digital marketing, and online discourse, making it an essential platform for businesses and individuals alike.
