In recent blog posts, I’ve shown you how to create Twitter and Google+ buttons to post on your web site. This time, I’ll show you how to generate the code for Facebook buttons, the different types available and what they do.
Firstly, click this link https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-button or search for “Facebook buttons” and go to the Facebook Developer page. It will look like this (you need a Facebook account to access these features):
The area we will be exploring is in the left hand column, under Social Plugins. The Facebook “Like” button is a staple feature of any web site these days, and along with Twitter and Google+ are probably the most commonly used. The “like” button is the easiest way to let visitors to your site share it with their own Facebook friends; if you use Facebook, you’ll know all about this feature. So leverage it on your dating site. This is what you do to create a Facebook “Like” button”:
Go to the admin panel for your dating site and you can experiment where to place your new “Like” button; this is an example of the “like” button on one of my sites, Women seeking Men, which I placed in the footer section of the site:
On this screenshot, you can see the “Like” button, which I also selected to include the “Share” button and that it has had 26 likes since I set the button up.
My next blog will examine more Facebook buttons and how to use them.
