Questions about Social Buttons

I just installed the Social Buttons on a new Piwigo installation and I am curious how the Facebook button is supposed to work. I click on the button and I can add a message and create a like. But what Facebook account does it connect to? I see the tumblr and other buttons bring up a login form, so I assume those buttons allow sharing photos with those sites (ie tumblr etc.)?

I had assumed that a visitor could post a picture from the Piwigo site to their social media sites - Facebook, Tumblr, etc., but there does not seem to be a way to login for Facebook.

Are there any docs on the plugin that say how it works?

Thanks,

Mark

Re: Questions about Social Buttons

Because you are already logged to Facebook

It works exactly like any other share button on any website

Re: Questions about Social Buttons

Thanks for the reply. I finally found the post on my Facebook page. I am not a big Facebook user, so I didn't even know I was logged in...:)
