Nowadays facebook is the number one social media.So is creation of facebook application and
showing sites under facebook is common.This post shows how to show website under facebook
and deal with setting canvas urls
From my previous post or any other ways you knew how to create facebook application.

Now you have to do the real part.Load your application by going at https://developers.facebook.com/apps
page, then click "settings" from app's left hand menu to go it's settings page,
there in basic settings tab, click "+ Add Platform" button at bottom and a pop up window comes up,
where a lot of platforms listed.Click "Website" in that popup then a website section will be added.After that
in that section enter your site url in "Site URL" field like - http://programminghelp24.com/

Now click again the "+ Add Platform" button and then from popup select "App from facebook" platform,
so is another section of that name will be added.Within that section enter your site url in the "canvas url" and
"secure canvas url" fields, but make sure you enter https in the "secure canvas url" instead http like this -
https://www.programminghelp24.com/.

Another step you need to do is enter a clear, reasonable name in the namespace field at top of that basic setting
page. Finally click "save changes" at bottom to save changes for the new settings above for your app.

Now everything is complete, browse your site under facebook by typing https://apps.facebook.com/namespace_name
here namespace_name is the value you put in namespace field in the basic settings page of the app.

hope that helps, don't forget to post questions in discussions/forum to get answers further
