Step 1

You need to get the facebook like box SDK from facebook developers site – https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-box-for-pages

Step 2

Include this javascript SDK right after the opening <body> tag.

<script>(function(d, s, id) {
  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
  js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.0";
  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

Place this html code in your webpage

<div id="fb-root"></div>
<div id="facebook_block">
    <div class="fbcontainer">
    <h4 >Follow us on Facebook</h4>
    <div class="facebook-fanbox">
        <div class="fb-like-box" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/w3lessons.info" data-colorscheme="light" data-show-faces="true" data-header="false" data-stream="false" data-show-border="false">
        </div>
    </div>
    </div>
</div>
