Hi, my name is Omar, and I'm a programmer. Today, I'm going to show you how to place like boxes in your WordPress blog so that people can like your page on Facebook and stuff like that. So the first thing you are going to want to do is log in to your WordPress dashboard. And you can see, I've already done that here.

And go ahead and search that. And it should be the first one that appears on the search. Just go ahead and click, "install," now. It will ask you if you want to install it, just go ahead and press, "okay." After it's fully installed, just go ahead and activate the plugin. Now you might want to know how to use this plugin. So, the first thing you want to do is go to appearance and widgets. And once you are there, you'll notice that the Facebook Like Box Widget has been added to your widgets list. Just go ahead and add this widget wherever you want it to appear on your page. My name is Omar, and I just showed you how to add a Facebook Like Box to your WordPress blog. Thanks for watching.
