I would like to put a pbs widget on my facebook account. Can someone please post the simplest "for dummies" way to do this? Step by step please. Thank You

Susan, if you go to this page http://www.paperbackswap.com/spread_the_word.php#show_banners, you can copy and paste the banner code of your choice onto your Facebook page. I am not a computer person, so this seems like an easy way to do it.

Edited since I can't type.

Well, that link takes you to banners, not widgets. This link takes you to the link on facebook where you add PBS to your Facebook profile. To be honest, after clicking around A LOT I am not sure exactly how it works. I did the process on that link and did the "allow" thing and the "add application" thing (sorry, I don't remember now what the 2 buttons are you click). Finally I found the applications link in my facebook acct, and clicked on Edit where I found PBS listed. Then I clicked on Edit next to PBS and under Profile /Box clicked Add.

I'm still not 100% sure what is accessible - I'm still clicking around trying to figure it out - good luck, hope this at least points you in the right direction.
