NOTE:  Before saving, edit the code by replacing where you see PAGEUSERNAME with your facebook page username. In this code, the timer has been set to 10 seconds, you can change it to either 15 OR 20 seconds(optional). I'll suggest you keep it short, so your readers don't wait too long.

  • Save the gadget and view your blog to see the facebook pop-up like box.

  2. This will force the user to decide whether he wants to like or ignore the FB fan page. Instead of keeping a box some where in the side bar, it is better actually.

    Thanks for sharing
