well I finally found a widget to put on my site to let my visitors "tell a friend"
what I don't understand is why is it that the yola site team itself was able to add the "like us" @ FB widget to the yola site itself but did not make that same widget available to the rest of us? and yet I can post all my updates to both twitter and FB as soon as I finnish publishing the site
I have had a few of my friends tell to to add that feature "friend me" or "like me" (both are FB features)
does any one know where to get those widgets ?? with the number of ppl that use FB every day that site is one of the best free advertisement sources in North America hands down "word of mouth" is always the best way

For those of you that like FREE stuff I have found a couple of really good sites that offer a lot of free widgets and gadgets for webmasters of any skill level and I am always looking for more and or better ones if any one is interested in swapping info on this drop me a line at tarotsbybob@gmail.com

Hi tarotsbybob,

There are a couple easy ways to add a Facebook Like button to your site. Please see our tutorial: Adding a Facebook button for both options. If you go with option two I think you will find there is a greater selection of the different types of buttons which you may prefer.

Really the best to use are the Facebook Like Buttons....Google has been increasing their importance in links pointed to our sites as it relates to ranking and search placement......If you use this the I Frame option works fine with Yola sites http://developers.facebook.com/docs/r...

to be dead honest that widget box gallery version of the of the Facebook button is totally a piece of crap
the answer that John gave was the exact button that I wanted and expected to find and it did not take a lot of searching to find it
thank you to both of you for your help and answers
