    Experienced this my self and had several users reporting: when pressing the "like"-button next to an article on our blog Numrush.nl and clicking "Post to Facebook", the like doesn't show up on Facebook itself. Not on the newsfeed, not on my or our users timeline. Like-count does add up...

    same problem here. sometimes, the article which is liked shows up in the timeline- but only with a huge photo and no short meta-text. Or it doesn't show up at all.

    I tried a link from my blog on FB Debugger: it says: "fb:admins and fb:app_id tags are missing. These tags are necessary for Facebook to render a News Feed story that generates a high click-through rate." what does that mean?

    Hi Julia,
    The fb:admins and fb:app_id tags are meta tags that should be in the <head> of you page.
    Have a look at this guide form Facebook...

    I have those tags installed in my head section but I still get nothing posted onto my facebook timeline unless I enter a comment (which is supposedly optional when liking). Obviously this is problematic because users of your site will be thinking they shared the page on their walls.

    You can see this problem here: http://www.telltalesonline.com/2292/justin-timberlake-reveals-explicit-music-video-for-tunnel-vision/

    Check the Facebook like button at the bottom of the article. I am using Digg Digg now, and I am experiencing another problem in the floating sidebar Facebook Like.

    Extremely frustrating. I have addressed this problem everywhere and I even tried using different social sharing plugins.
