We’ve had quite a few requests from Blurb authors wanting to proudly promote their books on their Facebook profile. Rather than create yet another one-trick-pony Facebook application, here are two simple ways to promote your Blurb books on Facebook using existing tools.
Though it doesn’t provide as much pizzaz, bookmarking your Blurb book within your Facebook profile takes all of five seconds. First, go to your Book Detail page on Blurb. Click on Bookmark It and select Facebook. Your book will show up in the “Posted Items” area of your Facebook profile.
Of course, showing off your Book Badge is far more eye-catching. By default, Facebook doesn’t allow you to add HTML to your profile. However, there are a handful of Facebook applications you can install that will allow you to do so. One that we’ve found that’s dead simple is available here. Once you have this application enabled for your Facebook profile, go to your Blurb Badge page and copy the HTML code for the book you want to promote. Paste that code into the Profile HTML application, save, and voila! You can now proudly promote your book on your Facebook profile.
