Social modules allow you to increase the interactivity and networking capability of your website.

If you want to add icons like Facebook your page, they can be found under the Social tab in the module dock at the bottom of the Builder. Click here for instructions on displaying your Twitter feed.

To begin, drag any of the modules into the desired spot on your page. Once your module is in place you can double-click the placeholder to change settings and enter information for each.

Click through the following topics to check out a video tutorial for each Social Module.

Social Links

Social Links are icons that link to your social media profiles on services like Facebook, Youtube and more.

From the Manage Social Links screen, add links or usernames to the social media accounts you want to direct your visitors to, then click Save Changes.

After your links are in place, you can use the icon picker in the formatting toolbar to change the appearance of your links.

Once you have the desired look for your icons, click Publish at the top of the SiteBuilder.

Facebook Like Box


The Facebook Like Box allow visitors to like your website on Facebook.

When using the FB Like Box, make sure you are entering the URL of your Facebook business page (not a personal Facebook profile) in the appropriate field.

NOTE: Also make sure your Facebook page does not have any country or geo-restrictions, otherwise it will not successfully publish to your FB Like Box module on your site.

Use the Settings menu to turn the header on and off, show the faces of the visitors that like your page, or show a stream of your updates. You can also change the color scheme of the Like Box.

Facebook Comments


The Facebook Comments module allows visitors to leave comments on your page using their Facebook account. If your visitor wants to leave a comment and is not currently signed into Facebook, they will see a message in the comments module encouraging them to sign in.

Use the Settings menu to adjust color scheme and the number of posts you wish to display.

Facebook Like Box requires that you enter your username or link in the appropriate field.
