“Page Badges” are designed to share your Facebook page information on your website.
This badge is usually found in the left menu of the blog and is by far the easiest widget. Below is step-by-step guide of where to find the code to display on your website.
- Go to Edit page in upper right portion of your Fan page
- Click on “Marketing”, then “Get a Badge”
- Once here you can edit and post badges to your blog or website. Clicking “other” will allow you to type your unique URL
There is another widget similar to Page Badges that allows fans to easily view your Facebook page updates and become a fan of your brand. It’s also an easy way to share sites that you like with your visitors straight from Facebook. It’s called “the Like button“.
To set up the Like button for your site, you just have to provide your company’s unique URL and specify where the widget should go on your site. When you’re done, just click “Get Code.”
One of the most effective widgets you may use is the “activity widget.” This widget displays the latest articles that were shared by visitors. When visitors are simentaneously visiting your site and their Facebook profiles, the widget displays the latest updates about your site from their Facebook friends. This way they can see which of their Facebook friends like your website. This is probably the best widget to create direct dialogue with Facebook community. This widget increases traffic on both your website and monitors activity of your potential customers. This is the most sophisticated but most effective widget of the three options presented in this blog.
