One of the easiest ways to increase Facebook likes is, adding Facebook Like Box to your WordPress Blog.
It requires only one click of your readers to like your Facebook page. And it’s the easiest way for readers to connect with you.
Adding a Facebook Like Box is extremely easy. While you can use a WordPress plugin like Facebook Like Box, I’d recommend you to do it manually.
Facebook offers Page Plugin that lets you create a Like Box for your Facebook page. Creating one is simple; it will take maximum 10 minutes. The Box will look like this
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).
4. Now login to your WordPress dashboard. Then go to Appearance (1) > Widgets (2). Grab Text Widget and place it on your sidebar (3). And paste the code there (4).
That’s it; You are done. Now check your website, you’ll find a cool Like box on your sidebar. Hope you will get more likes than usual. The disadvantage of using this widget is it takes times to load. I think you will consider it for the sake of likes. After all, it is the best way to connect your visitors.
