Go to Facebook » Follow Button menu option. The plugin settings are pretty intuitive. You would need to choose where you want the follow button to appear (posts, page, archives, home, etc.) and position (before or after posts, or both). Ideally, you would want to display author information on single posts. Depending on your theme, you can choose to display the Facebook follow button below the posts or before the post content. You can also choose the color scheme and content width. There are three layout available for the follow button (standard, button count, and box count). Choose the one that compliments your site’s layout and save changes.
