How to create your own social apps to use with Boost

Important update (for Pro and Agency users): To be able to use your own social apps and your custom domains at the same time, you need to also put your custom domains in the social apps settings in addition to our domain boost.link.
For example, in your Facebook app settings, you will have to add:
https://boost.link/_oauth/facebook
https://boost.link/_oauth/facebook?close

Now because you are using your custom domains as well, you will also need to add these URLs:
https://yourdomain.com/_oauth/facebook
https://yourdomain.com/_oauth/facebook?close

(Just replace boost.link with your domain name. And replace https with http)
