Display number of Facebook fans in full text on your WordPress blog

If you have a Facebook fan page for your blog, you might want to display how many facebook fans you have. Today’s I will help you to get your Facebook fan count, in full text!

For displaying Facebook fan Count you just have to add the below code anywhere in your theme :

<?php
	$page_id = "YOUR PAGE-ID";
	$xml = @simplexml_load_file("http://api.facebook.com/restserver.php?method=facebook.fql.query&query=SELECT%20fan_count%20FROM%20page%20WHERE%20page_id=".$page_id."") or die ("a lot");
