Pop up Facebook LIke box for blogger

Pop up Facebook LIke box for blogger


Facebook is the greatest website in the internet with over 3 billion users and having more 900 Billion users that log in a single day which shows the power of Facebook into bringing web traffic. In my Blog itself Facebook has been a great source of traffic ranking second from search engines . The Facebook like box can be horrible because it appears all the time but thanks to your complaints about the recent one which has lead me to customising it to pop up once the visitor visits your site.

Marketers have been using Facebook to promote their products and the same cab be done on blogger by adding this cool subscription Facebook widget below.
