Facebook Badgesfacebook badges

I don’t know why but facebook likes to make helpful items a mystery to find. Then once you find it; they switch to something else. I just discovered their badges page that lets you add widgets to your sidebar or footer. I had a previous post that was similar to this but the process on that link sometimes doesn’t work. Facebook now has one page where you can pick which type of badge to put on your blog. Facebook Badges Here are the three different styles of widgets you might want to add to your site.

Profile Badge

Share your Facebook information on other websites. (personal facebook)

click profile badge–edit this badge– select layout & info–save–choose where to add badge (wordpress=other)–copy code

  • Thanks for all the great tips. I am playing around with headers and can’t wait to see what you have to say to help the class. I gave up Facebook for lent and guess I will have to see what the changes are like. Do you have a prefernce for Facebook or twitter better?

    • I prefer twitter personally. But for business, many bloggers get much more traction with Facebook. I just started my Facebook page this year, so I still need to give it time to grow. http://facebook.com/farmnwife
