Add Facebook Share Button in Blogger Posts

Social media sites like Facebook & Twitter could be great source of quality traffic for any blog. You can also add a Facebook share button in each of your posts. This button will allow users to quickly share a post on Facebook.

Steps to Add Facebook Share Button Below Post Title


To add Facebook share button below post title, simply follow these steps:

  1. Back up your layout/template.
  2. Go to Layout then Edit HTML tab.
  3. Check Expand Widget Templates. The page will automatically refresh.
  4. Now find this code:
    <data:post.body/>
  5. Place the following code right before the code found in step 4:
    <!-- Facebook Button -->
    <div style='float: left; padding: 5px; '>
    <a expr:share_url='data:post.url' name='fb_share' rel='nofollow' type='TYPE OF BUTTON'/>
    <script src='http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share' type='text/javascript'/>
    </div>
    <!-- Facebook Button -->

    The result should look something like this:
    <!-- Facebook Button -->
    <div style='float: left; padding: 5px; '>
    <a expr:share_url='data:post.url' name='fb_share' rel='nofollow' type='TYPE OF BUTTON'/>
    <script src='http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share' type='text/javascript'/>
    </div>
    <!-- Facebook Button -->
    <data:post.body/>
  6. Click Preview button to see the result and then save your template.

<script src='http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share' type='text/javascript'/>
</div>

<!-- Facebook Button -->
<div style='float: left; padding: 5px; '>

<script src='http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share' type='text/javascript'/>
</div>
