This Facebook Social plugin – Recommendations Box shows not just the popular posts on your site, but the number of people who liked it and can show which of your friends recommended the content when you are logged in on Facebook on same browser. I recommend you add this Facebook Social plugin to your site if you want to improve your site traffic through Facebook.

4. Recommendation Bar: The Recommendation Bar is the Facebook Social plugin that shows a popup box to a visitor on your site when they scroll down on a page. This Social plugin can recommend related posts to visitors liked by other people.

You can display the Recommendation Bar with a Like or Recommend button in the upper-left corner of the Recommendation Bar. When a visitor clicks on the Like or Recommend button, the information is sent to the Activity area of the readers’ Facebook Timelines and also appears in the Ticker for their friends to see.

The Recommendation Bar is one of my favorite must use Facebook Social Plugins for a blog as it will greatly improve your site traffic through the recommendations it makes to your visitors. In fact it is known to have a higher conversion rate than the Recommendation Box.
