    Q: How do I add a Facebook Widget, Badge, Like Button to my FASO website?
    How do I add a Facebook Widget, Badge, LIKE button to my FASO website?

    A: If you want to add a Facebook LIKE button to your artworks, we have created an easy way to do that:

    1. Login to your FASO Account

    2. Click 'Social' on the toolbar

    3. Click 'Add a Social Sharing Bar to your artwork pages'

    4. Next to "Use Social Sharing Bar On Artworks", select 'Yes'

    5. Leave the Button style as 'Icon only'

    6. Save Changes

    On your website, you should now see the following share buttons next to your artworks:

    Pinterest (Pin it)
    Twitter (Tweet)
    Facebook (Share)
    Facebook (Like)
    Facebook (Send)

    We recommend using all these buttons, but, if for some reason, you only want the Facebook like button, you can add the following to your custom css:

    .faso-social-sharing-bar-pinterest-pinit {display:none;}
    .faso-social-sharing-bar-twitter-tweet {display:none;}
    .faso-social-sharing-bar-facebook-share {display:none;}


    NOTE: You need to be using an a Generation 2 or higher template.

    If you want to add a Facebook LIKE button to your blog - that is automatically done by FASO. There is nothing you need to do.

    If you simply want a Facebook icon that takes viewers to your Facebook page or profile, the simpliest way is to use the Social Media Icon feature.

    To add social media buttons:
    from control panel
    click on Social Icon (top row)
    enter your profile url
    Save Changes

    If you want a widget other than the Facebook like button, or you want a like button on a page other than artworks or blog posts, you will have to install Facebook's widget code yourself as follows:

    The older option is as follows.
    You will need the html code or the IFrame code for the widget. You will be able to obtain the code from Facebook (FB).

    To create your badge, go to this page at FB:
    http://www.facebook.com/badges/

    From there, choose your preference.

    If you only want a LIKE button, click on
    Get our social plugins (Like button, Activity Feed) here. This will take you to the Social Plugin page:
    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

    click on Like Button:
    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/

    -add your url
    -click on Get Code
    -click on IFRAME (top row in code window)

    -------

    Once you have the code copied (Ctrl C), add it to your FASO site by going to FASO control panel:

    1. click on 'Your Site's Home Page' (left column)
    OR
    Go to page in your control panel where you want to add link (e.g. main page, about the artist, etc.)

    2. Click on HTML - at the TOP of the text editing screen

    3. A pop up window comes up.

    Activate your cursor where you want the badge to show.

    Paste (Ctrl V) in FB code

    4. click Update

    5. click Save Changes

    ====================================
    NOTE: It is not possible to add IFrame code (for the Like button) until you become a paying client. This is due to the need to protect ourselves from malicious spammers.

    Q: Integrate your FASO website with Facebook
    How do I integrate my website account with my Facebook account?

    A: FASO's FB integration allows you to do a number of things.

    The various options are explained to some degree when you click on the Facebook Integration link in the far left column of your control panel.

    For more clarification of each:

    1. Click here to connect your FASO account to your Facebook account

    If you do this you are just connecting your personal page to your FASO site which simply allows you to track and see Facebook activity you have with other FASO sites - other accounts that you liked that are linked to FASO as well as paintings you have liked.

    This is not so much a marketing tool as it is a place to see your FASO facebook activity.

    ---------------

    2. Install the FASO ArtistEdge Newsletter Application on the following Facebook profiles or pages.

    This feature allows you to have a sign-up for your email newsletter onto your FB page. It only works with Fan pages, not your personal page.

    ---------------

    3. How to Activate Facebook Like Buttons on All Your Artworks

    From your Control Panel:
    Click on Artwork Portfolio
    Click on 'Edit the Works Display'
    Click on 'Options for Enhanced Templates'
    Use Facebook Like Buttons on Works - Click Yes
    Save Changes


    This feature will allow you to have Facebook Like buttons on your paintings - so your visitors can 'Like' your paintings. When they Like a painting, it will show up on their FB wall.

    The benefit of this 'Social Plug-in' is as follows:

    When the Like button is enabled on your site, and a Facebook user visits your site and clicks on it, a link to your page gets added to their activity stream. Suddenly, all of their friends can see that link, click on it and be led directly to your page.

    When that second person arrives, the Like button is personalized for them. It shows which of their friends have already clicked it, and when they click on it, a link to your page gets added to their stream.

    You can turn the Facebook Like button off the same way that you turn it on (just select No).

    ---------------

    4. How to add custom Facebook code (badges, like buttons, etc)
    This allows you to 'get' buttons from Facebook and add them to your site - you can add them on any page that contains a text editing screen.

    ---------------

    5. How to import your FASO blog to Facebook

    If you decide to use a blog you can add the blog to Facebook using this option.

    There are 3 ways to share your blog.

    (a) when you post the blog, just say yes when you get to the screen that asks if you wish to share on FB

    (b) go to Blog in the control panel. There is a list of all your blog posts. To the far right of each post is a link that says "Share on Facebook". It gives you the option to share on your profile or you can select your page. When you select the page, it will share on both the profile and page.

    You can easily share older blog posts by using this, if you want.

    (c) From the live blog, click on Comments on the post. You will see options to share on FB, Twitter, etc.
