Though it is not as efficient as above plugin but, you know people usually ignore what they see as a public post and pay attention what they receive as a message.
It means the one who’ll receive such message, surely be a visitor of your website. So I recommend this plugin too.

5) Login Button
If a Facebook user signup for your website then this Login button lets you show the profile images of user’s friends that already have signed up. This is very helpful to form a community the users who have signed up for your website via their Facebook accounts.
This is the easy-signup facility for visitors to sign up to your website via Facebook accounts. This requires a user to provide some basic information about them. If they have logged in to their Facebook account on same browser then these information spaces will appear as prefilled and they just need to confirm it and then submit.
It is highly useful specifically recommended for those sites which requires a sign up. Many people avoid those sites which requires a sign up (no matter how easy sign up criteria you’ve set). So signing up via Facebook with everything prefilled attracts users the most. In this it’s an indirect way to divert traffic to your site and a direct way to for users’ communities (i.e. those who’ve signed up via Facebook) and share community based contents to such users.
