How to add Facebook Like button to your blog

05/05/2010

Facebook, Social Media

Hello Friends,

Facebook recently announced a brand new way of adding social sharing feature to your blog with the ‘Like’ button.

You may be familiar with seeing the earlier ‘Become a Fan’ button which has been replaced now by the ‘Like’ button.Facebook Like button

Site owners can now bring the famous button to their site making it more interesting, viral, and most importantly -  leverage on the most popular social network in the world these days.

In this post I will share how to Embed this feature in your WordPress blog and what advantages it will bring to your site.

So How does it work and what’s the advantage to your site?

As you probably know – Facebook allow you to post statuses on which your friends can comment or Like. Same goes for links you are sharing across the web and appears on your wall. Here Facebook really turned the tables – They give you a code that you can plant and add to your Web site to one of its most famous functions directly within your Web site – The ‘like’ of course.

Even more beautiful is that when a casual surfer clicks on the Like button in your own site – that link (to your page) automatically appears on his facebook wall with a direct link to your site.
Cool ha? 😎

What really is shown as part of the code and how it helps?

1. How many total likes were to this article / post / site.
2. Visual preview of your friends who pressed the Like button.
3. The Like button itself.

Further to that, After the surfers clicks it, your Like appears on their wall and also appears on the front page news feed of Facebook – which increases your exposure even more.

How to use it?

So now that you understand the advantages of it, simply cut and paste the following code snippet
in to your WordPress blog:

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/widgets/like.php?href=http://example.com"
        scrolling="no" frameborder="0"
        style="border:none; width:450px; height:80px"></iframe>

Go to the backoffice of your blog to Appearance->Editor->Single post.
You can of course, adjust the height and width parameters to be fitted in to your own site.


The recommended location to add the option of ‘Like’ is at the end of the post – like Facebook browsing habits that usually surfers will give you ‘Like’ only after they’ve read the article – so this is the recommended location.

So now that you’ve got this tip for you, would you acknowledge it by pressing on the like button below now? 😉

Enjoy it !
Yossi

PS.  There are a bunch of social plugins and developer access like Single Sign-on, account registration data, analytics, server side presentation, etc, that are available now for you as well.
