How to Add the Quote Plugin to Your Facebook Page

By Stephanie Diamond, John Haydon

The Quote Plugin lets website visitors highlight any text on your Facebook Page and share it with their friends. Users don’t need any special permissions to use a quote from your Facebook Page.

To add the Quote Plugin to your web page, follow these steps:

  1. Visit Facebook’s Plugin Page and click the Quote Plugin link.
  2. To see how the Quote Plugin works, click the Try the Plugin button and highlight any part of the sentence displayed (select part of this sentence to see the plug-in in action).
