How to Add Facebook’s Like Button & Social Plugins to Your Web Pages & WordPress Posts
I must admit it was hard to sit still at the f8 conference after Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement in his keynote address and I attended a couple sessions that delved deeper into the Social Plugins and the Open Graph protocol. As soon as possible, which happens to be today, I decided to start experimenting by adding some social plugins to my WordPress blog.
I decided I could save others a lot of time if I wrote up a tutorial. So here it is….

I decided to go the XFBML route which, although a bit more complicated, is more feature rich than the iframe method. For example, after clicking on your Like/Recommend button, the user can add a comment to the profile post.
If you’d be happy with the simpler iframe method, there are already several WordPress plugins to add the Like button.
