How to create a Facebook profile badge

Facebook is the most popular social media tool used in the UK (July 2013 data) so these days it can be quite beneficial to have a Facebook page for your business as well as having your website. In order to link from your website to your Facebook page, you need to generate a “Facebook profile badge”, this then produces the necessary HTML code for you to copy onto your web page for the link.

To create a “Facebook profile badge”:

1. Log in to your Facebook page and click on the “Profile” tab
