HOW TO: Add Facebook “Send” Button On Your Blog
CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Facebook quite recently launched a new plugin for site owners called Facebook Send. The “Send” button allows you to hand pick select groups or individuals. By this they are also popularizing Groups and Messages Feature.
The Send Button allows your users to easily send your content to their friends. People will have the option to send your URL in an inbox message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of any Facebook group they are a member of, and as an email to any email address.
The message will include a link to the URL specified in the send button, along with a title, image, and short description of the link. You can specify what is shown for the title, image, and description by using Open Graph meta tags.
Below you can find the codes for adding Facebook Send Button. Just copy these codes and paste in on single.php or any other relevant files. Make sure you have used XFBML on your blog. [Learn how to do it]
