Hi

How can I do that.

You need to add an href anchor to your page like this.

<a href=''http://www.facebook.com/mygroup" target=''_blank">Join us on Facebook</a>

Instead of Join us on facebook. use an image of facebook. then code will be

<a href=''http://www.facebook.com/mygroup" target=''_blank"><img src="your image link"/></a>

You can also add a Share button on your site:

<a name="fb_share" type="box_count" share_url="yoursite.com" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php">Share</a>
<script src="http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share" type="text/javascript"></script>

Hi drakeshe


I have a query regarding the code. There is a solution that aqif_g has given in which we can give the link like <a href=''http://www.facebook.com/mygroup" target=''_blank">Join us on Facebook</a>. What is the difference between giving the link and sharing your website.

Secondly there is a script tag in your code section. Do I need to download any script file for this.

Kindly advice.

A join link takes them to facebook to join your facebook group.
A like button is a promotional button where they can share a link to your site.
Also, the script tag is linking to a remote script on the facebook, so no, you don't have to have any files on your site for that.

Hello KaranGupta,

I gave you solution for what you asked. A link for people to 'Join' you FB group.

drakeshe, given something else. A button by pressing that user will be able to share your site with there friends instead of joining your group.

These are 2 different thing.

I am not saying like, I have provided a solution. :) I am just trying to clear the difference. A pretty good and an IMPORTANT thing told by drakeshe.

regards,
aqif

Hi aqif_g

I am not saying that your post is worthless. I understood what you have posted but I wanted to clear what drakeshe had posted so there is no hard feelings :).
