You don’t need to have a Facebook share button, instead you can have this light weight ‘Like’ button. Once the person likes the article, he can click the ‘Like’ button. This like button integrates with this Facebook timeline, so it updates the information to all this friends.

On the Facebook developers site, they have given codes to be inserted in to the templates. But for WordPress users, GunnJerkens has made easy by developing a WordPress plugin.

All you need to do is, just download the plugin and install it on your blog. Once you activated the plugin, you can select the position where you need it to be. that’s it.

1. Go here and download the Facebook like WordPress plugin.

2. Go to WordPress dashboard > plugins > Add new > upload

3. Browse the plugin and upload it. Once you’re done with the upload, activate the plugin.

4. Now the plugin is activated and You can go to The Facebook-Like options panel and play with the settings.
