    1. Sure. Just go to template > Edit HTML and find the "Third" occurrence of this code: "data:post.body" in your template. Then copy the Facebook like button code from here:

      http://www.bloggersentral.com/2010/07/add-facebook-like-button-to-blogger_30.html

      Finally, paste the Facebook like button code below (after) the code you found in your template.

    1. It's working fine. Rather than pasting the code, just upload the template instead. Just go to Template --> Backup / Restore --> Choose File and Upload.

    2. Visit this link for the code. http://pastebin.com/9VFxUT8e

      In your template, just search for the following: class='contact-box'

      And from the link paste the code just below it.
