First, get the Facebook badge widget code. You'll need to get that from Facebook...since they change how to get things every now & then, please see their documentation on how to get the widget you want.

Have your widget code? Awesome! Copy it...then follow the instructions below, depending on where you want to put it:

  • Your Profile Page, and/or
  • On your guides

Adding Your Facebook Badge to Your Profile Page

  • From the Dashboard, click the edit link in the upper right corner of your profile box.
    Or click Edit My Account in the upper right corner of the command bar.
  • Click the Customize Profile Page tab. 
  • Click Add/Edit Badges (on the right of the screen).
  • Paste your "Badge" code from FB into the popup screen that appears.
  • Click Save.

Your badge should now appear on your profile page!
