Hello CelindaC

Adding your Facebook Profile Badge to your site is a great idea and simple to implement. Here's what you do:

1. Follow the link to this Facebook Plug-in page. If you are not logged into Yola, you will be asked to log in and then taken through to the page. Click on "Profile Badge".
2. When the page has finished loading, you will see a preview of your profile badge already on the page. Click on the "+ Other" button next to your badge preview to generate the code you need.
3. Facebook will generate the code you need and a small text field will appear and display it. Copy all the code contained in that text field.
4. Now go back to your Yola site and paste this code into an HTML widget. You can add HTML by dragging and dropping an HTML Widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere). An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to paste in your Facebook code. When you are done, click "OK" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page
5. Save the changes you have made in the Sitebuilder and Preview your page. Your new Facebook Profile Badge should be visible.

I hope this answers your question. If not, or if you had something different in mind, please let me know.

Keep in mind a Facebook "Profile" is not the same thing as a Facebook "Page." The Profile is a personal profile, while the Page is a business page.

It's all pretty confusing--at least for me.

If you want a link to a business Page, go to the tab (Wall, Info, Photos, etc) you want the link to go to. Copy the URL from the address bar and use that as the url in your link on Yola.

You can also make a Like button or box if you prefer. Facebook has the instructions for those.
