Creating Social Media Buttons: Facebook



After a brief overview, we discussed different buttons for Twitter last week in the blog. This week we will look at the various buttons that can be used for Facebook.

Follow Button (formerly called Subscribe Button)
This button enables you to reach out and increase your following. It allows your members to subscribe to your Facebook page.

Go to your Facebook page and copy the URL for it. Click this LINK. Fill in the copied URL. No numbers are needed for width or height. Click the button “Get Code.” Click on iFrame tab. Copy the code that appears.

Open your website in the editor (e.g. Weebly) you are using. In Weebly, drag the icon “Embed Code” to the position you want the button. Paste the code from Facebook. After publishing, you will see a “Follow” button.

Like Button
This gives your Facebook page a “thumbs up.” Members endorse your content and share it with their Facebook connections. This button does NOT allow members to personalize messages before sending them. The Share Button does allow personalized comments. The following directs allow you to add a LIKE Button and include the SHARE Button.

You will need your Facebook URL. Paste it into this FORM.  See the example below. Click “Get Code.” Copy the code. Open your website in the editor (e.g. Weebly) you are using. In Weebly, drag the icon “Embed Code” to the position you want the button. Paste the code from Facebook. After publishing, you will see a “Like and Share” button.


Although we’ve only covered Twitter and Facebook buttons in the last two posts, there are buttons for LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram. We hope to cover several more in the months to come.
