Facebook Like button of my Facebook page, not of my site. (4 posts)

    My site is http://www.parfumio.ro/

    I have already installed a plugin with the Facebook Like Button and now it shows 167 likes. On the other hand, my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/parfumio) has 6610 fans.

    Well, I would like to show THEM on my site, to show the likes that we received on facebook because they are more relevant, not the likes that we received on the site.

    Is there a plugin that does this? Or maybe code or something to achieve this?

    I have an example of site that has this installed: http://www.aoro.ro/
    It's not wordpress but if you look at any product page (e.g. http://www.aoro.ro/burberry/burberry-weekend-for-women-100-ml-eau-de-parfum/) you will see the like button showing the likes that they received on their facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/aoro.ro)

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Hello Larry, The problem is you are using a share button not the like box, SO it is showing how many times that post has been shared or liked.

    To show the like count of your page use https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/

    I think what you are after is Facebooks likebox: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/

    Check out how I implemented it in the sidebar of http://freewareninja.com, using simple html and css you can manipulate it however you like.

    Edit: looks like I type too slow

    Thanks guys

    I already have a like box implemented as a widget (via a plugin) but I would like to remove that widget and only keep a light version with a Like button. I have now implemented the Like Box as you said (you can see it at the top of my homepage, http://www.parfumio.ro) but it is not quite what I was looking for because it reads Parfumio on Facebook.

    I would like to show the likes exactly as they show them on the site that I have mentioned above, aoro.ro

    I appreciate your help.
