Here is some great info for hooking up facebook with your web sites.. enjoy.

If you belong to Facebook you will want to increase your networking power by letting people know you're there and by giving them a link to your Facebook page. One way to do this is to make a Facebook badge and display it on your blog or website. Here is how.

Things You'll Need:

  • A Facebook account
  • A place to display your Facebook badge
  1. Step 1

    Become a member of Facebook if you are not already registered (see link in Resources below).

  2. Step 2

    Sign in to your Facebook account.

  3. Step 3Facebook Menu   Facebook Menu

    Find the Profile link in the menu at the top of the page. Click Profile.

  4. Step 4

    On the Profile page, scroll down. Watch the column on the left until you see a link saying, "Create a Profile Badge." Click Create a Profile Badge.

  5. Step 5Badge Options   Badge Options

    On the badge page you'll find that you have several choices of ways to link to your Facebook page. You can make a custom badge, use a template or just create a simple HTML link. If you choose to use a template you can create a photo badge, a signature badge or a blog badge.

  6. Step 6

    Click Create Badge to get started.

  7. Step 7Choose Your Options   Choose Your Options

    Make decisions about how you want the badge to appear. If you know that your site will support JavaScript, you can choose that option. (My Wordpress blog won't allow JavaScript, so I choose the Image option.) Complete the settings in this window and click Save.

  8. Step 8Here's the Code   Here's the Code

    Facebook gives you the HTML code (or JavaScript, depending on your choices in the previous step) to add your badge to a blog or website. There is an edit option on the badge, as well as the option to delete it. Just below the badge code you will find the options to create a Custom Badge.

  9. Step 9

    Copy the information provided and use it on the site of your choice to help people find your Facebook Profile.
