- After you've customized your classic signup form, head to the publishing options by clicking the arrow to the right of the form in Audience and choosing Add this to your site or by clicking the name of the form and then selecting the Publish this signup form button.
- A modal will pop up with all of the methods for publishing your signup form. Copy the code under the Use an iframe option.
- Head over to Facebook. You'll need to be logged in to Facebook as yourself (a personal account) and not as your business or fan page.

When uploading an image to your signup form in NamasteLight, 480 pixels wide works best for Facebook.
If you'd rather bypass using the iframe application on Facebook, another option is to simply post a link to your signup form on your Facebook timeline. To post the link, copy the 'Link to It' URL in the list of add-to-site options. Post that link directly on your wall.
