Facebook is no longer accepting new domains for Domain Insights, but if you have previously registered a domain, you can continue to use Domain Insights for that domain by adding a Facebook admin.

Log in to your WordPress website. When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’. On the left-hand side, you will see a menu. In that menu, click on ‘SEO’.
The ‘SEO’ settings will expand providing you additional options. Click on ‘Social’.

If you do not see this option, please enable advanced features.

Click ‘Add Facebook Admin’ near the bottom of the page.
In the popup you get, enter the name of the Admin you’re adding and copy the ID into the second field:

Click ‘Add Facebook Admin’
Click ‘Save Changes’

Why do I need to store the name of the admin?

The only reason the name of the admin is stored is so that when you have multiple admins, you can know which one to delete later on, should you need to delete one.
