If you are looking to get your target audience to like your Facebook page or get them to add you as a friend, then a Facebook QR Code is what you need.

A Facebook QR Code, when scanned, will lead a user to your Facebook fan page or profile. Users can then like the page, comment on a post, or add you as a friend.

Note that Facebook does not allow automatic liking of a page just by scanning a QR Code. The user has to manually click on the Like button to confirm his/her intention to Follow the page.

You can use this QR Code in your print media promotions if you are looking to increase your social media following. This is particularly useful if you are a small local business or if you sell/promote actively using your Facebook fanpage.

How do I create a Facebook QR Code?

You can easily create this code by following the steps below:

1. Go to the Facebook QR Code Generator.
