Hello, I've searched the community and didn't find anything about adding a Like button to my emails.
What I'm referring to, is how a lot of different blogs are making it easy for readers to post their content to their Facebook page by clicking on a 'Like' button.
Is it possible to do this with an email newsletter? If anyone has any thoughts on this, I'd be interested to hear them.
To insert a link for either your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr or Blog account directly into an email: Find the block where the link will go. Click the Edit icon . Position your cursor where you want the icon to appear. Under Social Media on the left side of the screen, click on either the Facebook , LinkedIn , Twitter , YouTube , Flickr , or Blog icon. In the window that appears, choose the image you wish to use from the available choices. Follow the instructions under the Link box within the window to get the unique social media link. Click Insert. Wishing you success
This works fine for a simple link to facebook, etc. but does anyone know how to use the actual code for "Like Us" ? http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/ we can get it to show up in email - ie. gmail, etc.
How do I add a link onto my email newsletter so that people can like my facebook business page?
When you open a block to edit/add content, in the bar to the left where you add images, videos, etc - if you follow that column down you will see the facebook, twitter, etc. link add. Click on the facebook link. A window pops up asking which button you would like to use. Select the button, then paste your facebook url in so that it automatically links. The same for twitter and linked in.
Maybe someone can help me out here. I see how to add the facebook links using the insert tool in the editor. I don't see how to add a "like" button among the facebook buttons that are offerred.
I have a custom email that I produced. I've already added the facebook like button graphic. I just need the code so that when the email recipient clicks on the "like" button in the email it will add that person's like to our facebook business/fan page. Is it possible to do this directly from the email in the recipients email client?
Disregard my post, I found my answer here:
It's not possible to do this as of June 2011
You can add a Social Share bar to your custom email which will have a Like button. To add a Social Share bar to the email, follow the steps in this FAQ: Inserting a Social Share bar into an HTML or XHTML email
I hope this helps,
I misunderstood your post. The Like button will not add the user to your Facebook page. I'll go ahead and submit a feature request to see if that's something we could add in the future.
