These step by step directions will help you add a Facebook Like Box in the Widgets section of your site.

Facebook Social Plugins are scripts of code you can add to your website that display interactive content you've added to Facebook. A Facebook "Like Box" Plugin has a link to your Facebook Page, a button to Like your Facebook Page without leaving the website your plugin appears on, a stream of your latest activity and thumbnail images of people who have Liked your Facebook Page.

- From the "Active Widgets" area, select a "Text" widget and drag it to the Sidebar, Footer or wherever you'd like the plugin to appear
- Paste the entire code for your Like Box into your Text widget area
