I think you can use this code :

Code:

For BBCode :
[url=LINKHERE][img]IMAGELINKHERE[/img][/url]

For HTML :
<a href="LINKHERE"><img src="IMAGELINKHERE"></a>

A screenshot is unnecessary and completely useless for this posters question. Why complicate matters by asking them to do this?

It depends on what you want the facebook icon link to do. Do you want it to "Share" your forum link to facebook timeline when someone clicks it or do you want it to take them to your facebook page? If you want it to share your forum link to facebook you can use the code on this page, but it also has twitter and google+ just like what you see above the forumotion network on the top. Google+ tweet, Like.

If you just want a facebook icon to take someone to your facebook page when someone clicks it you'll have to find a facebook icon and upload it to your forum and then link it to your facebook page with one of those codes NikkoBryan14 posted above.

First you'll have to edit this code below and add the URL of the "betta bred face book page" where it says to add it. Just remove the text that says "URL OF betta bred face book page GOES HERE" and add the Facebook address URL there. Then after you upload a facebook icon to your forum or to photobucket or any other image host you want, then add the URL address to the place in the code that says "URL OF FACEBOOK ICON GOES HERE".

Here is a facebook icon you can download and then upload to your forum or any other image host and get the URL of the icon to add to the code:

http://cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/aquaticus/48%20X%2048/facebook.png

Add the URL's to the code first then come back here and tell me where would you like the facebook icon to show on your forum.

Code:
<a href="URL OF betta bred face book page GOES HERE"><img src="URL OF FACEBOOK ICON GOES HERE" border="0"></a>

So then he is just wanting to go directly to his or another facebook page of his choice.

Ok yeah guess that would be the best way to do it, i was not sure if he was talking abaout setting up the facebook conect or adding the widget like we have here.

My understanding is he just wants a facebook icon to go to that facebook page he mentioned. The widget has google and twitter also and I don't think he wants that, and plus it doesn't take you to a page it shares a forum link.

Also the widget just shares the forum link it doesn't take you to a page.
