The AddThis Facebook Share button allows you to add a personalized message to your Facebook shares before sharing links to your timeline, with groups of friends, or as a Facebook message. There are multiple ways it can be displayed, which are shown in the table below.

The vertical “box_count” button is the default layout. The code is

<a class="addthis_button_facebook_share"></a>

There are multiple other styles that can be specified, by adding the “fb:share:layout” attribute. For example:

<a class="addthis_button_facebook_share" fb:share:layout="button_count"></a>
