    Fb fan page pop up Facebook Page Promoter Lightbox Popup WordPress PluginFrom last few months, I have worked hard on increasing engagement on ShoutMeLoud Facebook fan page and working on promoting my page to get more likes and users. I have tried Facebook advertising (Highly recommended) and few tips which I applied on my blog, which helped me to supercharge my fan count on Fb fan page. (We crossed 15K fans milestone).

    Here I’m talking about one such WordPress plugin, which I have used for a while and it’s working out great for SML Fan page.

    FB page promoter WordPress plugin is a free and very useful plugin for any WordPress blog which will make sure your one time user will turn into Fans. This is a plugin which display a Fan box pop-up when a user visit your Web page. The plugin comes with minimal settings and all you need to do is download and install this free plugin from WordPress repo and add your Fan page ID. Here is a quick guide which will help you to configure this plugin.

    How to set up Facebook Pop up Lightbox plugin:

    Download and Install this plugin from official page here. You can find this plugin settings in a separate tab in your dashboard under Arevico Settings > Facebook light box.

    Go to settings page and all you need is your Fan page numeric ID, that you can easily retrieve by following this guide:

    Follow this link: https://graph.facebook.com/shoutmeloud and replace ShoutMeLoud with your fan page name. At the top, you will get an ID and that’s your Facebook fan page numeric ID.

    Just copy the ID in plugin settings page and configure other options like (Pages, homepage,archives) where you want Fan page popup to be shown and after how many days you want to show pop-up again.

    I’m using this plugin from last 2 month and I have seen a great increase in number of likes on my fan page. Though there are some downside of this plugin, as this pop-up is little irritating when reader is viewing your site on a mobile phone. I tested it on my iPad and it works fine and you can easily close the pop-up, but when using your site on small mobile screen, this plugin could be very irritating. Though, over all this plugin works great and you can easily expect good number of increase in fans by using Facebook page promoter plugin.

    You can configure this plugin to show pop-up only on Homepage to make it less irritating and you can also set the “Show every x days” to higher number like 30, to show pop-up box once in a month to a reader. Over all, I find this plugin very useful and specially you will be getting targeted likes, since user is liking your fan page from your blog.

    Hi Harsh
    You again come up with a great advice substantiate with a handy plugin. Though I never notice this FB popup in your website. Did you implemented it on the whole site or a few selected pages. Did you notice any increase in Bounce rate when you implement this Plugin ?

    Nice Plugin but there should be an option to turn it off on mobile devices. Would be using it on my blog if I am able to find a way to disable it on mobile phones.

    Is there any way to make it appear only once for a visitor , it pop ups on every page view which is irritating

    You can configure it to display it once every several days. Some tips on how to configure it to get the most out of it:
    – Determine average article length. Set the delay to the estimated article read length. When the user is finished reading or atleast gets to know the value of your content, they will be presenterd with the likebox. (6.000 -10000 ms delay is the minimum recommended).

    – Show it once every 7 days at a minimum.

    The premium version has also an option to hide the box on mobiles and to set a cookie for those who liked the page. It won’t be shown again to people with that cookie. We plan to incorperate a option to hide the lightbox by clicking on the overlay also.

    I have tried this for 3 month. It helps good to increase your Likes. But it looks so irritating as it pop up in every page. Many user hates that.

    When someone will browse the site in mobile then this pop up creates a hell lot of disturbance, Though it will increase the likes but it might irritate our visitors.

    The popup plugin always destructs User experience. However, it helps in promoting our brand by increasing the number of likes. But, as you mentioned, it irritates the user while browsing from mobile phones, that too while browsing from Java s4o mobiles.

    This plugin shows the awesome use of jquery light box.Although its a plus to have it 75% times mostly, some users might think it is annoying . Especially the every day readers.

    The cookie system should be replaced with something advanced which can identify the IP address of the reader and then show the box after the number of days set.

    It’s really a good strategy to promote blog fan page and to increase fan page likes, but as likely it is also annoying to the visitors (specially if they are regular visitors). Thanks for this useful post though !

    I have used this Plugin today. I am getting an error message. This plugin is even good one for a slow loading blog. I am getting error message as Could not retrieve the specified page. Please verify correct href was passed in. What might be the solution ?

    Harsh Aggarwal, Does this plugin disables after liking it and if not liked it keeps on popup everytime ?. If this plugin doesn’t have this setting can you suggest me another one.

    I also have tried it out, sometimes visitors like the page through this plugin, but many times they just ignore. How to make visitors convince to like your page. ???

    yes. This plugin is looking good and many hopes to getting more visitor. but only thing it may irritate users by showing in every page. another thing is it slows down the page loading especially in IE.

    @harsha
    if i give Show every x days: 1. then will it be getting more likes

    A good plugin which serves the purpose well. I am going to use this plugin on my website, I guess. Btw, do you know anymore alternative plugin which is similar to this and which has feature so that likebox won’t appear for those visitors who already liked the fanpage?

    Nice plugin. But will it slow down blogs?

    I have used it for long, and haven’t noticed any slowness due to this….

    @Harsh I can see you are using a pop up notification system for email subscription. So I guess “Lightbox for Facebook” is also safe and can be used with Adsense. Actually, I am afraid to use a pop up plug in in my wordpress as it violates Google Adsense T&C.
