If you have integrated Facebook into your blog, you can do things with it other than displaying your status in Facebook. You can display in your blog the number of Facebook fans you have in full text. The advantage of this feature is that people will know that you are a blog to be spent time on especially if you have a lot of fans. People will gain trust knowing that you are not alone and people believe in your credibility. Additionally, if some of your fans are friends of the one that is visiting your site, they might as well trust you and become one of your avid readers.
