There are several additional ways in which you can use Facebook with your Wix site.
 

1. Add a Facebook Like button so that your visitors can Like your site:

To add a Facebook Like button: From the left side of the Editor, click Add > click Social > click Facebook Like.

 

2. Add a Facebook Share button so that your visitors can share your your site with their Facebook friends.

To add a Facebook Share button: From the left side of the Editor, click Add > click Social > Click Facebook Share.

 

3. Add Facebook Comments to your Wix blog so that your visitors can comment on your posts.

To add a Facebook Comments box to your Wix Blog: From inside your Editor, navigate to your Blog page > from the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Social > click Facebook Comments.

 

4. Add a Facebook Page Like box to your Wix site so that your visitors can Like your Facebook page directly from your Wix site.

      Hi,

       

      Before we transfer this to our technical team, please make one more adjustment.

      In the social settings of your site, please change the facebook link to a facebook user and not a facebook page.

       

      Thanks,

      Hi lou875,

      Thank you for contacting us.

       

      I understand you want the Facebook Like button to like your bussiness page and not your personal profile in Facebook. In order to do so you need to set a username for your business' Facebook page and then add it to the Social Settings on your Wix Editor.

       

      To set a username for your Facebook page follow the instructions here.

       

      After the username is set, add it to the Social Settings of your Wix Editor by following these instructions:

       

      From the left side of your Editor, click the Settings icon > clickSocial Settings > under Facebook Username, enter your username > click Done.

       


      Please contact us if you require any further assistance.

      I think you have misunderstood my issue - and somewhere along the line my original issue has not be read properly.

      I would like to add my facebook feed onto my wix web site.  I understood that to do this, I need to add the option which is called 'facebook page like'

      However when I try and add my facebook address it keeps saying invalid character and doesn't seem to like the address I am inputting.

      I have attached a screen shot.

      Hi,

       

      I'm sorry for the confusion.

       

      I have accessed your editor and noticed that your Social Settings are set incorrectly with Facebook.

      The Url should direct to the Facebook user's profile (of an actual person not a business‎), not the page.

      This is likely the cause of your issue.

      Please set the social settings correctly so we can further investigate the matter should the issue persist.

      All the best,

      Nika.

    Afternoon everyone.

    I want to have my FB page shown on my wix home page. 

    I have embedded my twitter feed to my homepage without any trouble using an HTML code. With FB, I have used the profile link and website selection option as the source. 

    https://www.facebook.com/graddiscount?ref=profile

    Please can you advise how I can get this as an iframe on my home page?

    Many thanks

      Hi,

      Facebook may not always have updated information regarding your site, this is why your site's description and photos may be out of date when posting on your wall. To update Facebook with your site's recent information make sure you have changed the site's description from the default (you can do this on the editor, click settings at the top and update, be sure to save your changes).

      Now use this link.

      It allows you to submit your site to Facebook for re-scanning. Paste your site's URL and click Debug. Once done updated pictures of your site will appear instead of old or default pictures as well as your updated site description.

      Please follow this link for more information.

      Best, Ritti
