How to add Facebook Like/Fan Box to Blogger

A Facebook Fan Box or Like Box is a great plugin that allows blog visitors to subscribe to your blog updates via their Facebook accounts, without leaving your blog. Once subscribing (by pressing the like button), visitors will receive your most recent blog updates on their Facebook page. This box also displays faces of the "likers" on your blog. Before creating a fan box, you should already have a Facebook fan page. If you haven't already done so, please see here How to Create a Facebook Fan Page.

How to Create a Facebook Like Box

1. Find out your Facebook fan page URL by visiting your Facebook fan page and copy the URL in the address bar - you can see how your URL should look like in this screenshot:

facebook page address

2. Next, visit this page: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin

3. Paste your URL into the Facebook Page URL field, as it is shown below:

Note: If you don't want to display the timeline of your Facebook page, remove the "timeline" text under the "Tabs" section. You can also specify the Width and Height of the Facebook fan box and change other several options such as using a Small Header, hiding Cover Photo and Show Friend's Faces.

4. Once you are satisfied with the looks of the Like Box, click on the "Get Code" button

5. Next, you'll be given two code options: JavaScript SDK and IFRAME. The one we will use for this tutorial is the iFrame code. Select it and copy the code generated in this box as shown in the screenshot below:

7. Once the pop-up window appears, scroll down and select the 'HTML/JavaScript' gadget:

html / javascript, blogger gadget

8. Paste the iFrame code in the empty HTML box:

javascript html gadget

9. Click the 'Save' button and you're done adding the Facebook Like or Fan box to Blogger.

  30. is this possible for this pop up to appear only to those who didn't liked it already, I mean it should check the cookie and see if the visitor has signed in to his fb account and if he already had liked the page then this pop up doesn't show.
