Embed Official Facebook Share Button Into Your WordPress Blog
Facebook has massive fans and followers all over the world which this can be definitely a great source of incoming traffics if we able to expose our WordPress blog to its maximum level.
One of the way is the by integrating the Facebook element into our WordPress blog. There are few ways to integrate it in especially through plugins. I have covered this topic through one of my post before – Top 6 WordPress Plugins to Integrate Facebook Elements in Better Ways.
In the post, I have shared with you a plugin called fbShare.me which has identical function like the TweetMeme button. It will show how many times one particular WordPress blog post is being shared in Facebook.
FbShare.me is an unofficial plugin and base on my experience through Huzzer Magazine, it has bugs and do not work perfectly as what I expected.
However, Facebook has developed and just launched its official Facebook Share button widget which let webmasters i.e. WordPress bloggers to embed Facebook Share button into their WordPress blog.
Facebook gives us few options in modifying and select the best design that will suit with our WordPress blog. They are:
- Style of the button – Normal button or link
- Counter – Located above the button or in line with the button
After you have selected the options that suit you best, the code for the Facebook Share button will be generated. You just need to paste the code to the place that you want it to appear through the theme editor.
If you are planning and looking for the best ways to publicize latest blog post, this Facebook Share button can be the perfect choice.
To know more about it, you can head to its official site – Official Facebook Share Button
What do you think about this button? Will it help us to improve our WordPress blog especially in terms of quality traffics? Is there any difference between the official button with the fbShare.me plugin?
