These easy-to-create widgets are a breeze to customize
The Facebook Page Fanbox is a social widget that converts casual website visitors into fans of your Facebook Page. The Fanbox does this with three key features:
• Streams content from your Facebook Page onto your website.
• Displays your current fans.
• Enables visitors to “become a fan” of your Facebook Page with one mouse click.
Embedding this widget on your website or blog is an absolute must — for any social media strategy. Plus, it’s very easy to create!
How to place a Facebook Fan Box on your website or blog

We launched a new "Connect" page at Cross-Cultural Solutions just last week which features a Facebook Fan Box. It doesn't have our Page's status updates just because it makes the Connect page look a bit busy, but it shows 14 random profile pics of our fans, which is nice. Check it out at http://bit.ly/349QX.
