In this Thesis Tutorial I show you how to add a Facebook Social Plugin for the “Fan Page Like Box” to your WordPress blog or website if you are using the Thesis Theme for that WordPress blog. You SHOULD be using the Thesis Theme to follow this Thesis Video Tutorial. If you are NOT using the Thesis Theme then I have created a separate WordPress Video Tutorial for you here! This is a really cool plugin that will allow people visiting your WordPress blog or website to click the LIKE button for your Facebook Fan Page and see the pics of all the other people who have already LIKED your Facebook Fan Page which gives your Fan Page the Social Proof it needs to get more followers! That makes it easier for your Facebook Fan Page to have so much more exposure, credibility and visibility. You can find all the details for this Facebook Social Plugin here in written form. However, my Thesis video tutorial shares some great information with you and makes adding the Facebook LIKE Box so much easier than reading the text.
Get your Facebook Application ID first!
Before you install this plugin, however, you need to create a Facebook Application or Facebook App and get an App ID. It’s sounds complicated but it’s really very simple and easy to do. I have created a short video that shows you step-by-step how to create a Facebook Application and get an App ID here. Once you create that Facebook Application and get that App ID you can come back here and watch this video to complete the steps. It’s all so much easier than it sounds and my videos make it all very easy to follow. Enjoy!
