Have you seen a Facebook Fan Box on someone’s website or blog? This blog uses the Fan Box Widget in the right hand column. I also placed an enlarged, customized version of the Fan Box Widget on my website. Click the link to see what the customized version looks like.
I love the Fan Box Widget! It allows you to promote your Facebook Fan Page anywhere you can place html code. When you set-up the Fan Box, you select whether you want it to show a live stream of YOUR status updates (it will not show posts originated by your Fans or comments) and/or icon photos of your fans. I think choosing both are good because it allows your website/blog visitors to see a sampling of the posts on your Fan Page AND how many fans you have. If they see good content and a decent number of fans, they are more likely to visit your Fan Page or click the “Become a Fan” button at the top of the Fan Box!
To create your own Fan Box, click on “Add fan box to your site” underneath your fan page logo/photo. You can add the Fan Box to your website/blog yourself or send the generated html code to your web designer so they can add it for you.
I love my widget, how about you?
