Now that you have your Twitter feed up and running on your WordPress blog, adding a Facebook Like box to your site will help you with promotion of your products and services. This post will go through the steps to add the Facebook Like box for WordPress.com sites. If you have a WordPress.org site, you will need to have a Jetpack plug in to proceed.
Facebook Like Box
It’s easy to add the Like box once you have created a Facebook Page on your Facebook account. Go to your Facebook account to create a Page for your business. A Facebook Page is an additional page added to a profile in which anyone can visit it and read the content.
To create your Page, log into your Facebook account, click on Pages from the menu under your profile picture. This will ask you to choose the type of Page you wish to create. Facebook will ask you to fill in a description and add a link to your WordPress site. Upload your Page profile picture and you are good to go. One thing to keep in mind is Facebook pictures are square shaped and if you are trying to use your WordPress header photo, it’s not square, so this may not be the photo to use.
Be sure to click SAVE before you go back to your WordPress site. Now you are ready to add the Like box.
Here we go – First go to your WordPress site Dashboard
1. go to the Appearance menu – then to Widgets.
2. Drag the Facebook Like box into a Widget box.
3. Type in your Facebook Page web address. (*Make sure it’s your PAGE address).
4. Make any changes to the box now, such as size, color.
5. Click Save.
Now visit your site and see your Facebook Like box. You can always go back to the Widget menu to make adjustments to the Like box.
