How to Add Facebook Like Box Widget to WordPress

Here’s the step-by-step guide (with screenshots) on how to add the Facebook Like Box to your WordPress blog:

1. At first, go to Facebook Social Plugin Page.

2. Now you need to enter your Facebook Page URL (1). Then do a click on the outside of the box and it will show a preview of your widget. You can show single or multiple tabs like timeline, events, and messages under the like box. Just type the tab name (2). To show multiple tabs, use a comma-separated list i.e. timeline, events.

You can specify Width (3) and Height (4) of the box. You can also use “Adapt to Plugin container width” (5) to fit the box inside the container width.

You can hide the cover photo (6) or use a small header (7). You can also select whether to show friend’s faces or not (8).
