Facebook is the king of social networks. You may not be a fan of how Facebook does business, but the site can drive a ton of traffic to yours if you play your cards right. You need great content and an even better Facebook strategy to gain more fans on the site. Adding a Facebook fan-gate to your website is a more aggressive way of getting more followers on Facebook. Not everyone is going to like that approach though. These 5 fan gate plugins allow you to test this idea on your site:
Social Locker: one of the best social lockers available for WordPress. It is highly customizable and supports various social networks, including Google+, Twitter, and Facebook.
Like 2 Unlock: this is a Like button and content locker plugin. It allows you to lock certain parts of your content on a page until the reader Likes your article.
Custom Facebook Fan Gate: adds an overlay pop up to your posts asking your visitors to friend you on Facebook. This plugin has stats and historical data to track your progress.
Like Gate: allows you to reveal hidden content when visitors like your article. The pro version offers you even more flexibility.
Facebook Like Locker Pro: allows your visitors to unlock bonus content when they Like your pages. You can have an unlimited number of lockers per page. The plugin has 8 color themes.
You should be very careful how you go about implementing a Facebook fan-gate. You wouldn’t want to turn off your visitors. The above plugins allow you to test the idea though.
