    i created a facebook page for my xf forum site.

    upon reading the xf facebook manual

    it says you need to create an app thru this link

    it errors, facebook said:
    To use this feature, you will need to sign up for a personal Facebook profile.

    but facebook policy states that a website must use PAGE
    and not personal facebook accounts else your account will be disabled.

    Now im confused..
    i cannot use personal facebook account due to im using it for a website forum of mine.

    i created a facebook PAGE as recommended by facebook for website
    but xf integration wont allow..

    please help

    I'm not sure I understand.
    Unless Facebook have changed their T&C's, you can just go ahead and create an App and use it for your site.

    I think you're getting Facebook Pages mixed up with an app which just facilitates logging in and registering on a forum.

    theres a policy in facebook i read
    that personal facebook account must be used by a person(human)
    with first name and lastname and not a name of the website.

    if you will use it for a website, you need to use the PAGE for website.

    my question is:
    i created a facebook page (not personal facebook account) for my xf site.
    does that mean i cant use the facebook integration/facebook xf registration?

    You're not using the Facebook account for your website.
    You're creating an App to be used by your website.

    Two different things altogether.

    Just create a standard Facebook personal account and then create your App.
