Guides on creating the applications for each of the social networks we support. Applications are generally used for authentication features, but each social network has additional features that having an application will help with (Open Graph Actions, meta tags, social sharing, etc).

Social networks are continually evolving so the application setup process changes quite often. If you are having issues with our setup guides for a social network and notice that the guide is out-of-date, please let us know so that we can quickly go through the process and update our guide for you.
