As said in the introduction, Facebook is more and more popular and it should not underwhelm any of the owners of websites. Every day, you can find on it more and more potential customers and users that Facebook can bring to your website or e-shop, and where they can share information through it from your personal webpages or blogs with friends.

Profile, Page or Group?

Before you start to register on Facebook, you should read the terms and conditions. Among many other important information in those terms, you will learn that you can create so called profiles, pages or groups and each has strict rules on how they can be used.

The personal Profile can be created only by one person and there must be introduced a true information about you such as the profile photo. The Pages or also fan pages are used to promote other business or another commercial, political or charity organizations. The Groups are used for communication between people of the same interest and having the same opinion. The wrong way of their use may lead to deletion of your account.

Whether you want to inform that you or your organization is on Facebook and what are you doing there or you are attracting fans and you want to use the button “I like” for the sharing, Facebook allows you to use different types of badges or social buttons. In the settings of your Personal profile or in the editing of the Pages you will find the possibility of generating of so-called widgets and you can insert them and copy the Embed html code into the page.
