Note: If you are using the previous “Facebook Like Box”, you can still switch it to the new and improve “Facebook Page Plugin” just by following this simple steps. And if you have not installed it to your blog before, then this post will be even more useful.

Steps:

You don’t have a Facebook page yet? You will need to have one before you can carry on with the below process.

First visit the official Facebook Page Plugin Here

If you’ve entered their official plugin page, you will see something like the image below.

Now, in the “Facebook Page URL” area put in your Facebook Page Name. Normally, your Facebook page name is supposed to be http://facebook.com/your-page-name.

You can add the width and height to best fit your blog. But if you do not wish to add a width or height, you can simply leave those space blank.

Note: if you have the older version of the Facebook like box, you don’t have to undergo the first step. But you can carry on from the next step

Now copy the second code from the Facebook page and place it on your side widget. To locate your side widget, go to your WordPress admin panel >>> Click on “Appearance” >>> Click “Widgets” >>> now drag the “Text” widget to where you’d want your Facebook Page to show.

  1. Hi Babanature,

    Informative post indeed 🙂

    I hadn’t noticed the new changes Facebook made, or perhaps some people were earlier also adding the page plugin to their blogs using some codes I think. I must check this out as we made a new page so could add it up there if need be.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    • Hello Harleena,
      Glad you liked the post 😉

      They recently changed the look of how the “like page” look like.
      Now you have the option to add your page cover photo and they also added a share button so your page can be easily shared without your readers leaving your blog.

      I am sure you are going to love it. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment and do have a best week start.

    • Hello Samir,

      It’s been a while, good to have you back 🙂

      The adjustment they added to the like box was good and now, you don’t have to go to facebook direct before you can get liked or redirect your readers when they like your page widget.

      Thanks for the comment and do have a wonderful week ahead…

      Every platform has their own advantage and disadvantage. Because a blogger is on the blogger platform owned by Google doesn’t mean he will rank more than a blogger whose using the WordPress platform.

      Facebook is one awesome way to get traffic to your blog… 😉

    • Hello Swapnil,

      Before your page can generate you some good amount of traffic, you will need to get a good amount of traffic. So your reach can be greater when promoting your blog post through the normal rout or through paid ads 🙂

      Thanks for the comment and have a blessed weekend

    • Hello Christy,

      Looks like you like coding as well 😉

      This is not a plugin per say, it is a code that you’ll implement in your blog. implementing codes doesn’t stress your server or take up resource.

      I am sure you’ll love it after the implementation.

      Thanks for the comment and do have a lovely weekend
