PUTTING A TRANSPARENT FACEBOOK LIKE BOX TO YOUR BLOG

Have you ever walked in somebody’s blog and saw something that amuses you, and you be like “whaaaat” I want one of those on my blog. Yep! If you’re new to blogging and/ or just created a facebook like page you will need this to get you more likes from your blog readers.

How does the facebook transparent like box works? Once a visitor visits your site, a transparent facebook like box will pop up prompting the reader to like your facebook page. Don’t worry, it won’t annoy your visitors because it will only come once and it has a cancel button if the reader do not feel like liking the page.

If you need to see a sample of the like box then do check here

Once you implement this code on your blog, it will increase the likes on your page by showing your readers your page. Let me not bore you with my talks and let’s get the code shall we.

Now copy the below codes as it is:

    Your post seems good as I have added a like box to my blogger blog. Now I need to remove border of a static like box to put it into my blog sidebar. Can you please help me?

    • says

      ok if you want to create a Facebook like for your sidebar, you’ll have to go to Facebook developers page and get the like box. on editing the like box, you’ll see a space for border, now change the border to your preferred color. hope that helps!

      Hello Wilson,
      replace “your username here” with your own username simply means: if your facebook page is “http://facebook.com/onenaija/”, put the “onenaija” in the username area. that’s all
