Do you have an AppID ?

The JavaScript SDK requires that you register your website with Facebook to get an App ID (or appId). The appId is a unique identifier for your site that ensures that we have the right level of security in place between the user and your website. The following example shows how to load the JavaScript SDK once you have your appId:

Hope this helps

  • But wait, I am not making an application. I just need to use the Subscribe button.

The link you've provided is for a person's profile - it looks like you've created a people profile and not a page, hence no subscribe.

//update after comment

Go here to enable subscribe for your page and here to generate a subscribe button for your site.

enter image description here

Code for subscribe for your page

<iframe src="//www.facebook.com/plugins/subscribe.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpages%2FAxonn-Says%2F372194956141393&amp;layout=standard&amp;show_faces=true&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;font&amp;width=450" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
