Best Facebook Send Button Widget for Blogger / Blogspot

In this post, we will see how to add the Facebook Send Button as a widget to your blogger blog. This is the simplest way to add the Send button widget for those who are novice to HTML and Javascript or tweaking Blogger templates. I have also tested this on my test blog and it works fine.I have also given the source code of the widget at the end which could be useful for developers. To add the Facebook Send button widget to your blog post, follow the instructions as provided below:

1) In your blogger blog, navigate to Design -> Page Elements. When you do this, you will get a "Add and Arrange Page Elements Screen" as shown below.

2) Your screen may look different depending on the number of Gadgets you have added. Now, click on "Add a Gadget". You will get a pop-up window, in which you have to select "Add your Own" option.
