What is a Facebook Like Box?

In simple terms, a Facebook ‘Like Box’ profiles your Facebook page on your website.

Why have a Facebook Like Box on your website?

Air NZ Facebook Like Box

Here are 3 reasons:

  1. It makes it easy for website your visitors to like you on Facebook
  2. It provides instant proof that real people actually like your business (helping build trust)
  3. It shows that you are up to speed with social media (showing you’re up with the times)

Your Facebook Like Box can include the following things:

  • Your Facebook page name and profile picture
  • A history of your Facebook posts (a stream of what you’ve recently shared on your Facebook page)
  • The number of fans your Facebook page has

And here’s the awesome/creepy thing: Your website visitors will see their friends faces in your Facebook like box if any of them like your business.
