The Like Button Widget is one of Facebook’s social plugins. It adds a Facebook Like Button to your Campaign. By default, the Like Button is set to Like the Campaign itself. However, it can be configured to Like another URL or a Facebook Page.
- To have the Like Button “Like” a URL other than the Campaign, enter a URL in the URL to Like field. Leave this field blank to have the button Like the Campaign.
- Use the Layout buttons to choose from Standard, Button Count, or Box Count Layout.
- Check the Include Send button so that the user can send a link to the Facebook Page and a message to their friends, a group, or an email address. The Send Button does not include a link to the Campaign, only to the Facebook Page. Important Note: The Send Button only works on Facebook Pages with at least 25 Likes.
- Check the Show Faces box to display the profile pictures of the user’s friends who have also Liked the URL. This option only works with Standard Layout.
Enter a width for the widget, in pixels. For best results (especially on mobile devices), leave Manual Width blank.

Use the drop-down menus to select between these Facebook-generated options.
Tracking Referrals can be used to pass a referral parameter to the external website, so it is only useful when “Liking” an external URL, not when “Liking” a Facebook URL. For more information, see the ref parameter documentation for the Like button.
