    Thanks in advance for the support.

    I have the most recent version of Facebook plugin installed. My facebook Like button appears before and after every post. On my site, the Like button works - for example on http://www.mammothtourism.com/dumping-mammoth you can see that I have 60+ likes.

    Big problem. These likes do not show up ANYWHERE on Facebook. Not on people's walls who like my page. Not on my website's Facebook page at all.

    What's the point of having a Like button on my page if it's not increasing my visibility on Facebook? This is sabotaging possible revenue!

    Help!!!

    A Like is an action taken by a Facebook user and posted to his timeline. That action may or may not rank well in the News Feed of his friends.

    View the all activity section of your profile to see everything. Example URL: https://www.facebook.com/{username}/allactivity

    Liking a page does not guarantee distribution of the Like. Like + comment helps. Exposing large images in the metadata presented by the Facebook for WordPress plugin helps. If people are successfully able to take the Like action on the URL and you see it posted to your Timeline's activity then you have a Facebook content ranking issue, not an issue with a WordPress plugin adding a Like Button social plugin to your page.
