I’d like to add a Facebook badge to my blog similar to what I’ve seen on other websites. Where do I get the code from?
I was asked this question by Derek Richardson, a friend of mine who was looking to enhance his new blog.
Adding a Facebook badge to your blog is a simple matter of retrieving the code from Facebook and putting it in the right place on your blog. This page will take about how you get the code, but how you insert it in your blog varies from platform to platform, so I’m assuming you know how to do this. So, here’s how to get your Facebook code.
- First, log into Facebook and view your profile. If you scroll to the bottom of your left-hand column, you’ll see a link that says “Create a profile badge”
- You’ll be given an introduction to Badges if you’ve never created one before. Click “Create a New Badge” to proceed.
- Make your selections and click Save. You’ll be given the code you need to insert into your blog at this stage:
As you can see, it’s quite easy one you know how. It’s amazing how many things you can do on Facebook, everything but finding out about repairing kitchen sinks it seems; well, I’m sure that information is there somewhere 😉
