Facebook template is not found in Visual Studio 2015

Problem Background

Today I thought of creating a Facebook app using Facebook template which was available in Visual Studio 2013. Shockingly the template was not available once I select ASP.Net Web Application template and click OK (Screen shot attached).

Then I got to know by searching online that there is a new extension has been released for ASP.Net project templates.

Check out the below link and install the Visual Studio 2015 Extension for ASP.NET Project Templates.
