How to Add the Facebook Like Box / Fan Box

Personally, I prefer to link to my Facebook page using a simple icon link in the footer (bottom) of my website. If someone is on your website, chances are I want to keep them there rather than sending them off to get lost on Facebook. Unless your Facebook page is the soul of your marketing, consider just using a social icon. Social icons are built into most of our themes and the page builder, so check there first to add social icons.
