I’m a pretty social girl. Whenever I see something new in social media that I think will have a big impact, I jump on the bandwagon as soon as I can. This past week Facebook released this new “like” button for people to use on their websites. It allows people to like pages that are not part of Facebook, and posts links to the Facebook news feed. Pretty sweet.
I like it!
This version does not show the little pictures of people who like the page. If you want it to show the pictures, set show_faces=true. I also modified it to be a lot smaller than the original widget. You can play with the height and width to suit your site. I have like in my header – I stuck it right in the <h1> tag in the skin. I like seeing it at the top. Some people are trying to convince me to put it at the bottom of the page, so that I can include the faces as well. I still have to think about it. What do you think?
