Facebook Like Button

You can add a Facebook Like button (and other sharing options such as Twitter, Google or Pocket) through Settings → Sharing in your dashboard.

To add it to your blog, enable the sharing options you want and drag the Facebook button from Available Services to Enabled Services.

Read more about this on the Sharing support page.

Facebook Like Box

The page needs to be public and shouldn’t have any age or geographic restrictions if you want it to be visible to everyone, like in this screenshot below:
