<style type=”text/css”>
/*<![CDATA[*/
#fbplikebox{display: block;padding: 0;z-index: 99999;position: fixed;}
.fbplbadge {background-color:#3B5998;display: block;height: 150px;top: 50%;margin-top: -75px;position: absolute;left: -47px;width: 47px;background-image: url(“http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-1GCgbuSZXK0/T38iRiVF41I/AAAAAAAABpg/WlGuQ3fi-Rs/s1600/vertical-right.png”);background-repeat: no-repeat;overflow: hidden;-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 8px;-webkit-border-bottom-left-radius: 8px;-moz-border-radius-topleft: 8px;-moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 8px;border-top-left-radius: 8px;border-bottom-left-radius: 8px;}
/*]]>*/
</style>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
/*<![CDATA[*/
    (function(w2b){
        w2b(document).ready(function(){
            var $dur = “medium”; // Duration of Animation
            w2b(“#fbplikebox”).css({right: -250, “top” : 100 })
            w2b(“#fbplikebox”).hover(function () {
                w2b(this).stop().animate({
                    right: 0
                }, $dur);
            }, function () {
                w2b(this).stop().animate({
                    right: -250
                }, $dur);
            });
            w2b(“#fbplikebox”).show();
        });
    })(jQuery);
/*]]>*/
</script>
<div id=”fbplikebox” style=”display:none;”>
    <div class=”fbplbadge”></div>
    <iframe src=”http://www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?href=YOUR-FACEBOOK-PAGE&amp;width=250&amp;height=250&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;show_faces=true&amp;border_color=%23C4C4C4&amp;stream=false&amp;header=false” scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ style=”border:none; overflow:hidden; width:250px; height:250px;background:#FFFFFF;” allowtransparency=”true”></iframe>
</div>
7. Replace YOUR-FACEBOOK-PAGE text above with the URL of your facebook fan page.
Also replace the : symbol in your URL with %3A and / with %2F

For example, my facebook fan page is:

http://www.facebook.com/vietbacseomanage

After replacing the characters above, your facebook fan page should look like this:
http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpages%2Fvietbacseomanage%2F120574614736021

Other settings (optional):
– to change the width and height of the facebook box, change the bolded values (250)
– to change the background color of the facebook fan box, replace #FFFFFF with the hex code of your color .
– if you want to change the color of the facebook badge (facebook button) replace this code #3B5998
with your own.

8. Now you can save your widget. Enjoy!
