I have one more basic lesson for you and next week we will be jumping into the fun stuff!

Today’s lesson is on how to add a Facebook like box to your site.

Assuming that you have already set up your Facebook fanpage, you have everything you need to do this.

There are several ways to do it.

A.  You can do it in your blog dashboard

WordPress

  1. From your dashboard, go to your appearance menu
  2. Click Widgets
  3. Find the Widget labeled: Facebook Like Box, place it in your sidebar.
  4. Fill out the information and save
  5. Tips: Choose either show faces or show feed for a more streamlined look. Also, it will look better if it is the width of your sidebar. For example, my sidebar is just over 300 pixels, so I chose to make my box 300 pixels wide.

Blogger

  1. Log into Facebook
  2. Scroll down and find the link to your page on the left sidebar, click the link
  3. Click “edit page” on the top right
  4. On the left side of the page, there will be a list of actions, click resources
  5. Select “social plugins” from the grey box
  6. Scroll down and select “Like Box” you will be here: 
  7. Fill out the fields to acquire the look you want. You can use my qualities as a reference. 
  8. Click “get code”
  9. You will then see a “pop up” window
  10. Select and copy the code from the bottom box
  11. Go to your blogger dashboard- click design.
  12. Under Page Elements, click “add a gadget”
  13. Scroll down and find “HTML/ JAVA script” click the blue plus sign
  14. Paste the code from facebook in the content box
  15. click save
  16. Arrange that widget where you would like your new like box to appear
  17. enjoy getting more facebook likes
