• Overview

    You can publish your Wix creation to Facebook in several ways such as sharing your updates on your wall or embedding your site into your Facebook Page.

    This page refers to posting to your Facebook profile. For information about posting to your Wix blog, click here.

  • Sharing Your Site on Your Facebook Wall

    Posting your recent site updates on your Facebook Wall is an excellent way to generate traffic and improve your SEO! You can post directly to your Facebook Wall from the Wix Editor anytime that you publish your site. Your posted site will include your site's most current thumbnail and site description.

    To share your site updates on your Facebook Wall:

    1. Click Publish in the Wix Editor.
    2. In the window that appears, click Publish again.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Click Share on Facebook.
    5. From the Facebook window that opens, sign into Facebook and then edit your wall post. Click Publish.

    Your post appears on your Wall.

    Posting to your Facebook Wall by using the Wix Editor generates your site's most up to date thumbnail and description. Your thumbnail and description may not be up to date if you post to your Wall directly (instead of through the Wix Publish process described above).

    If you post to your Wall directly and the information is not up to date, use Facebook's Debugger here. Simply type your website URL in the Input URL or Access Token field and click Debug.  The Facebook Debugger will process your site so that the title, description and thumbnail pictures appear up-to-date when you post your site to your Wall or Page.

    When you are posting to your Facebook Wall by using the Publish button, the post will state that it was published by Wix unless the site is upgraded to remove the Wix ads.

    Note that when posting a Wix site on Facebook, an addition will be added to the URL: for example: www.yourdomain.com will appear as www.yourdomain.com/?from_fb=1

  • How do I link from my website to my social profile and vice versa?

    You can link from your site to your social profile by linking an item on your page to an external URL. To do so, click on an item in your Editor and then click Link from that item's property panel. Type your social profile's URL in the URL field under the URL tab.

    For more information on linking items to external URLs, click here. Please note that users will only be able to see your general public page if they are not your Facebook Friends or if they are not logged in - be sure to adjust your Facebook settings.

    You can also use the HTML Widget to add features such as the Facebook Like button to your Wix site.

  • What is the difference between a Facebook Like Box or Button?

    Though the names are confusingly similar, the two functions are not the same and it is important to understand the difference. 

    Like Button

    The Like button is a convenient way for your website visitors to share a particular page on your site with their friends on Facebook. Like buttons are best used at the top or bottom of every page on your site, immediately before or after the content.

    Like Box

    The Like box, on the other hand, makes your site visitors fans of your company's Facebook page. From that moment on, they will see every announcement that you post on your Facebook Page in their Most Recent News feed. You can let your website visitors "Like" your company's Facebook page with one mouse click, without them having to leave your website! All you have to do is to add a Facebook Like Box to the pages of your site.

    To add a Like button, simply follow the steps provided here.

    To add a Like Box, follow the steps below.

    Adding a Like Box

    To add a Like box to your site, you must to have a Facebook page, you can create one here.

    We recommend using a Like Box instead of a Facebook Like button. A Like button's "Likes" may be reset when your URL changes (i.e., when you change the Home page, change a page name, etc.). Please note, however, that a Like Box is an external product, not a Wix product, and has not been tested by Wix.

    You can create a Like box for your site, which looks like the regular Like button. A user clicking on that button will automatically Like your Facebook fan page. From that moment on, they will see every announcement that you post on your Facebook Page in their Most Recent News feed. 

    To add a Like box button:

    1. Create your Like box button here.
    2. Add your page URL.
    3. Uncheck the Show Faces, Show stream and Show header boxes.
    4. Click Get Code and then from the pop-up window, select iframe.
    5. Copy the iframe code and paste it in the blank HTML widget in the Editor.
