Adding a Meta (Facebook) Share Button to your Smart Builder Page


The Meta (previously Facebook) Share button lets your page visitors quickly and easily share links to their timeline, groups or through Meta Messenger. 

This article explains adding a Facebook Share button to your page using Unbounce Apps.

Installing the Facebook Share Button App

  1. Navigate to the Apps tab on the left-hand side of Smart Builder.
  2. Search and locate the Facebook Share App.
  3. Click the plus button next to Facebook Share to install the app.
  4. The Meta Share Button app will appear in the Add tab in Smart Builder.

You can drag and drop the Meta Share app anywhere on your page. To learn more about drag and drop, see this article: Using Drag and Drop in Smart Builder.  

Embedding a Link in the Facebook Share Button 

Now that you've installed the app, you can add the Meta Share button to Smart Builder.

  1. Drag and drop the Facebook (Meta) Share app into a section in Smart Builder. 

Next, you must set up the link/URL nested within the share button. So, when visitors click this button, it will redirect them to Meta where they can share the enclosed link.

  1. Single-click the Set Up Share Button placeholder. 
  2. Click the gear icon to launch the Facebook Share Settings.
  3. In the black field beneath Share Page URL, type or paste in the page link you want visitors to share on Meta:
    The URL in the blank field within the Facebook Share Settings pop-up window.


Be sure to include http or https at the start of the link.

  1. Adjust the Button Size (small or large):
    • Small: 71 x 20 pixels, or
    • Large: 80 x 28 pixels.
  2. Update the Layout options.  
    • The Layout options refer to how you want the button to appear and with what information to include. For example, do you want a count highlighting how often the link is shared? Here are the different layout options:

    • To test the different layout options, select a layout option from the list, and click Apply
  3. Click Apply to complete the changes.

That's it! Be sure to Save & Publish your page. 

To test out the button, navigate to the Preview mode of Smart Builder.

The button will redirect you and your page visitors to the Meta (Facebook) sign-in page. Once signed in, you can share the link with your network: Gif demo of a user clicking the Facebook Share Button, and being redirected to Facebook's (Meta's) log-in page.
