Putting a Facebook Like Box for your Facebook page on your WordPress blog does two things for you; firstly, it allows you to easily build your Facebook fan base, and secondly, it a great way to ‘social proof’ your blog.
If you look on the right hand side of this blog, you should see a Facebook Like Box and it will look something like this:
Setting up a Facebook Like Box on your WordPress blog is very easy to do. Assuming you already have a Facebook page, go to the ‘Add New Plugins’ section of your WordPress Dashboard and search for the following plugin:
‘Facebook Like Box Widget‘ by sunwu2007
After you’ve installed and activated the plugin, to get your Facebook Like Box set up on your blog’s sidebar, do the following:
- Go to the ‘Appearance > Widgets‘ menu
- Drag the ‘Facebook Like Box‘ widget to the sidebar that you’d like it to appear on
- Adjust and Save the widget settings
And that’s all there is to it!
