    Threads merged. Please don't keep posting what is effectively the same question in new threads.

    I don't use Facebook. If I were to arrive at a site which tried to force me to "like" them before I could proceed, I would leave that site, never to return. Surely likes are only worth having if they're genuine?

    I merged them so that we don't have multiple threads on the same subject.

    I mean you risk alienating visitors to your site if you try to force them to like the page before allowing them to proceed.

    I also see no point in accumulating likes in this way. They do not reflect what genuine visitors actually think about the page, any more than bought fake likes do.

    Likes on fb page should genuine and come naturally. This way your likes would be of that people who are actually interested in your page. But you can also add a pop up with a fb like button if you wish people visiting your website to like your page. But your popup should go away if a user would not want to like your page and user can access your website easily without liking your fb page.

    By that I mean somebody you has gone to your page, read it, liked it and decided for themselves that they want to use the "Like" button. This is not the same as somebody who is forced to use the like button before they can login and access the content they want (and therefore possibly before they've even seen the page they're supposed to "like").

    You can get the fb like button code from fb developer tools page. From there you can get the code for like button and put it wherever you want it in your website's code

    That should be all you need. The page also shows you how to add a "share" button next to it so they have the option to share your page with their friends if they find it worthwhile. I would also caution against forcing visitors to like your page...instead, INVITE them to like it once they are already there, but give an option to decline the invitation. I certainly wouldn't hit the "like" button if I hadn't seen the site I was trying to get on ~ in the same way, I would not refer a friend to a dentist that I had not personally visited.

    dont force people to like your page before they use your website
    use another strategy to get more facebook likes
    just put the link after the login page but dont make it mandatory
    if you want facebook likes just get facebook ads
