Using Facebook Social Plugins

Last Updated: Jan 12, 2018 11:27AM EST

Facebook Social plugins let you see what your friends have liked, commented on or shared on sites across the web.

Once you've installed the application it can be applied to any page from the Add-Ons tab on the Left Menu.

Like Button

The Like Button lets a user share your content with friends on Facebook. When the user clicks the Like button on your site, a story appears in the user's friends' News Feed with a link back to your website.

Use this plugin to let your readers help you drive traffic to your website.

Send Button

The Send Button allows users to easily send content to their friends. People will have the option to send your URL in a message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of one of their Facebook groups, and as an email to any email address. While the Like Button allows users to share content with all of their friends, the Send Button allows them to send a private message to just a few friends.
