Incorporating the Facebook logo and link to your Facebook page within your e-mail signature means every person you e-mail will see and potentially visit your page. Depending on your purpose, your Facebook page can raise awareness of an important cause or promote your business services by means of informative updates, photographs and calendar events. A link to your Facebook page is an unobtrusive way to invite people to learn more without requiring a lengthy and overwhelming signature block.

Visit the Facebook Brand Resource Center.
Right-click on the Facebook logo you want to use in your e-mail signature and choose "Save." Save the image to an accessible location on your computer.
Upload the Facebook logo to an Internet-accessible location, such as your personal website directory or an image hosting service. If you do not have one, create one with a free file images service such as Flickr, Box.net or Dropbox. Make careful note of the direct URL of your uploaded image.
Paste the following HTML code in your e-mail signature:
<a href="http://facebook.com/FANPAGEURL"><img src="http://path.to/facebooklogo.png" /> Visit my Facebook Page</a>
Replace FANPAGEURL with the exact path to your Facebook page. Replace "http://path.to/facebooklogo.png" with the exact URL of your uploaded Facebook logo image. Change "Visit my Facebook Page" to a different link anchor text if you prefer.
Tips and warnings
- HTML signatures show up for only recipients reading your e-mail in an HTML-capable e-mail client. If a recipient does not have an HTML-capable client, she will see just a non-clickable link with no image.
- Do not link directly to the Facebook logo on facebook.com or on any other site besides a file sharing service. Each time someone reads your e-mail and loads the logo image, it takes up a small amount of bandwidth on the server hosting that image. Bandwidth costs money, and it's considered stealing to link to images on sites that do not expressly allow you to do so.
