You may have noticed Facebook Like boxes on websites, they are those boxes filled with the faces of the people who ‘Like’ the Facebook page connected to the website, some may even include details of the most recent posts from the page. There is a massive advantage to having a Like box over a simple link or button that brings you to the Facebook page.
