Facebook has added a new addition to its growing list of widgets. It’s called a Fan Badge.
Here’s what it looks like:
The Fan Badge allows Facebook users to promote the Facebook Pages that they’re fans of via their personal website or blog.
It’s simple for users to create a Fan Badge. After clicking on the Fan Badge option from within the Facebook Widgets center, simply choose the Facebook Page you would like to promote from the provided drop-down menu.
Then copy and paste the code where you want the Fan Page to appear on your website.
Note to Facebook: Since people can be fans of multiple Facebook Pages, it would be nice to have a badge that includes more than one Page.
While Facebook already offers a Page Badge that allows a business to showcase its Facebook Page, this new Fan Badge is a nice addition for users to highlight Pages they like. In addition, Page owners could easily (and nicely) ask their fans to promote their Page by using the Fan Badge.
