What are Facebook follow buttons?

Facebook follow buttons are every Facebook user’s bread-and-button: easy-to-use, one-click buttons that enable one-click access to follow your Facebook account – in other words, a streamlined invitation to grow your social following.

No opening new tabs. No switching apps. No extra effort required. Remove the hurdles and suddenly, people are more likely to follow you. Bottom line: If you’re on Facebook and you care about your following, then you need a Facebook follow button. It’s just that simple.

What is the ShareThis Facebook follow button?

The Facebook follow button is a mobile-optimized, lightweight and easy-to-configure-and-install button that enables Facebook users to follow your Facebook profile/page in a single click – no Facebooking required.

In other words, if someone is browsing your website or blog, loves your content, and decides they want to follow you on Facebook, they can: They’ll simply click the follow button, which is sticky-pinned to the top of a page/post or in a floating position, and without leaving your website or blog, they’ll become a follower. One click, and they’re back to consuming your content.

How do you get the follow button option on Facebook?

As far as enabling the follow option on Facebook – in other words, making it possible for public users (not your friends) to follow you – the process is simple:

1.     Navigate to Facebook and open your Settings;

2.     Find Public Posts on the left-hand menu;

3.     Under Who Can Follow Me, select “Public;”

4.     Now, anyone who wishes will be able to follow your Public audience posts. (Note: Friends-only or friends-of-friends posts will remain available only to those audiences.)

How do I get followers on Facebook?

First things first, if you have Facebook friends, you already have followers: Facebook makes it so all friends become followers, by default.

But, since you’re asking, we’d bet you’re interested in amassing more followers than just those on your friends list. The answer to that question is not so direct: In order to gain followers, you need to create content worthy of following. You know the drill.

Here’s your shortcut to more Facebook followers, fast: Enable the Facebook follow button on your website or blog, and you invite every single website or blog visitor to become a follower. And not just to become a follower, but to do so with a single click – no app-switching, no tab-opening, no navigating-away-from-what-I’m-doing required. Make it easy and you’ll find that more people take you up on your invitation.

Who is following me on Facebook?

Once you’ve enabled public Facebook followers and installed the ShareThis Facebook follow button, you’ll want to check your follower numbers from time to time. Note that there are natural fluctuations in these numbers, but in general, you should aim for a solid upward trend.

To track who’s following you on Facebook:

1.     Navigate to your profile page.

2.     Click on the Friends tab (currently located beneath the cover photo).

3.     While in the Friends tab, hover over the More tab; if you have enabled followers, this will show up – click it.

4.     Your current followers-but-not-friends will display.

May the mass following begin!
