I'd like to add a Facebook Like/Share button to my WordPress page.

The page is at

http://www.vslcomputers.com/monthly-newsletter/

If you look at the source code and search for the appId of 183445492146 you'll see the code there.

Any thoughts?

Thanks Edwin... I tried the plugin by Facebook to no avail.

I just installed the social-share-button plugin... do you know how to get a button on a page now?

All social sharing plugins

Which actually isn't all of them, it's just all that have that tag.  The plugins that Edwin lists are all perfectly capable but what you are going to find is that some will "fit" better in your theme than others and some will actually break your layout.  This is a common plugin and all levels of design quality exist. Your biggest decision is if you want a floating sidebar, a widget, or icons embedded directly in your content.

You should also be aware that the Jetpack plugin from WordPress itself contains a sharing module:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/

as well as a lot of other functionality.

I found a solution on YouTube that led to the Facebook Like Button Plugin that seems to work.
