So today I will share some powerful and stylish Facebook widgets for Blogger that you will love to install on your blog. But before moving any further let me tell you something about the widgets that I am just about to share.

These widgets include Facebook likebox for Blogger, Facebook follow us button including other social media buttons and some widgets that we created previously.

Facebook Likebox widget for Blogger

Facebook likebox widget is very useful for webmasters to engage their audience on their Facebook fan pages. Also it is a great way to promote your Facebook page and to get new likes and followers.

Facebook has deprecated the previous Likebox plugin after the release of Graph API v2.3. So now you have to use a more advanced and faster plugin that will not put any burden on your blog’s page speed.

Here is the complete guide of how to install this awesome Facebook widget on your blog. 

First go to your Blog Dashboard->Template->Edit Html and search for <body> tag like this:

search body tag for facebook blogger widget

Once you have found the <body> tag, then just after it include the Javascript SDK on your page.



<div id='fb-root'/>
<script>(function(d, s, id) {
 var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
 if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
 js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
 js.src = &quot;//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&amp;version=v2.5&amp;appId=837524639611911&quot;;
 fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, &#39;script&#39;, &#39;facebook-jssdk&#39;));</script>

Just like this:

Now when the Javascript SDK is installed on your website, now you can easily put your Facebook widget any where on your blog. Ideally, you should put your Facebook likebox on sidebar. For that copy the code which is given below:



<div class="fb-page" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/your-fanpage-url/" data-tabs="timeline" data-small-header="false" data-adapt-container-width="true" data-hide-cover="false" data-show-facepile="true">


<div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore">


<blockquote cite="https://www.facebook.com/your-fanpage-url/"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/your-fanpage-url/">Your fanpage name</a>


</blockquote>


</div>


</div>


 

Please replace “your-fanpage-url” with your  fanpage URL. And replace “Your fanpage name” with your original fan page title.

Just like this:

<div style="background-color:#F0F2F2;width:300px;padding:10px 0 10px 10px;height:250px;border:0px solid #CCCCCC;">


<div style="height: 250px; overflow: hidden;">
