    I created a Facebook "Page" [for my business] that has been added to my regular Facebook profile. I'm being offered a "Like Box" with the following description of it:
    {The Like Box is a social plugin that enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to:
    -See how many users already like this page, and which of their friends like it too
    -Read recent posts from the page
    -Like the page with one click, without needing to visit the page}

    I'm guessing I implement this into my business website somewhere? But where?
    It gives me two codes... one is "iframe" and the other is "XFBML", and I don't understand what either of those means, nor where I would insert them? Do I need a separate site page on my website for Facebook to put this? Cus it's actually pretty big, as in it's not just a "Like" button, it's a whole frame of the like button at the top, followed by all my updates (on my Wall) which you can scroll down to read'em all, followed by a list of the people who "Like" my page, including their pictures which are clickable links to their Facebook profiles. So I'm wondering if I should have a separate page for this???
    Thx for the help!

    Ok, so I got this working already, so my apologies... it was actually easy! Thx for reading!
    Oh, PS: Just in case anyone else out there wonders how to do this, you just implement it anywhere in your html code and it works!!!

    The iFrame is the one they want people to use, now, I think. You just host the page on your own server and tell FB to load it into the iFrame, adding their features to your code.

    Well done for working that out 'cos FB is a minefield - there's so many ways to achieve similar outcomes.

    Well, thank you, but I actually used the XFBML code... which you're more than welcome to look at ordermex.com/facebook.htm and see what you think?
    Thx again!
