Initialisation

By default FacebookProvider is loading facebook script immediately with componentDidMount (you are able to use it with SSR). If you want to download facebook script only when facebook component is rendered you need to add parameter wait to FacebookProvider. Use only one instance of the FacebookProvider on your page.

Usage

Like button

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, Like } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <Like href="http://www.facebook.com" colorScheme="dark" showFaces share />
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

Share post

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, Share } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <Share href="http://www.facebook.com">
          {({ handleClick, loading }) => (
            <button type="button" disabled={loading} onClick={handleClick}>Share</button>
          )}
        </Share>
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

Share button

You can use predefined button with bootstrap and font awesome classNames

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, ShareButton } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <ShareButton href="http://www.facebook.com">
          Share
        </ShareButton>
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

Comments

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, Comments } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <Comments href="http://www.facebook.com" />
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

Comments count

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, CommentsCount } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <CommentsCount href="http://www.facebook.com" />
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

Login Button

import React, { Component} from 'react';
import { FacebookProvider, LoginButton } from 'react-facebook';

export default class Example extends Component {
  handleResponse = (data) => {
    console.log(data);
  }

  handleError = (error) => {
    this.setState({ error });
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <LoginButton
          scope="email"
          onCompleted={this.handleResponse}
          onError={this.handleError}
        >
          <span>Login via Facebook</span>
        </LoginButton>
      </FacebookProvider>
    );
  }
}

  }

  render() {
    return (
      <FacebookProvider appId="123456789">
        <Login
          scope="email"
          onCompleted={this.handleResponse}
          onError={this.handleError}
        >
          {({ loading, handleClick, error, data }) => (
            <span onClick={handleClick}>
              Login via Facebook
              {loading && (
                <span>Loading...</span>
              )}
