Adding the Facebook "Like" Button to Your Blogspot Blog

As you'll see, we've added the Facebook "Like" button to Wise Law Blog today. Detailed instructions on how to install the "Like" feature on your blog are here.

As Social Media SEO noted on April 29, 2010, "after just one week, the Facebook ’like’ button has already been added to over 50,000 sites and the number is growing."

The "Like" feature does appear to slow down the overall loading of the site. We'll monitor it for a while to see whether our readers are using it, and then decide if it's a keeper.

Update - September 29, 2010:

After several months of experimentation, we've recently removed the "Like" button, for now at least. The primary reason is that the "Like"widget was unacceptably slowing down our blog's load times - often by five seconds or more. We're not alone in this complaint. Beyond that, it wasn't highly utilized, and given the cost of slow load times, just wasn't a justifiably beneficial feature, on balance.
