    Just noticed this today, there is a link being added to my site and ALL sites that I Googled using this plugin.

    Not sure how this Jerk is doing this and for how long it has been happening for but I urge the developers to look into this and all that read this and are using this plugin on your site to remove it ASAP until this is fixed.

    Here is the HTML output from this plugin with the hidden link:

    <div style="height: 0px; width: 0px;"><a href="http://www.burkina-faso.biz/" title="PME/PMI, entreprise, &eacute;conomie, Emploi et petites annonces Burkina Faso">PME/PMI, entreprise, &eacute;conomie, Emploi et petites annonces Burkina Faso</a></div>

    I made a quick search on Google for this text:

    PME/PMI, entreprise, économie, Emploi et petites annonces Burkina Faso

    And found: About 29,600 results (0.51 seconds)

    Actually, I think you're referring to a different plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-likebox-widget

    (Note the missing hyphen, likebox vs. like-box)

    And apparently that behavior is intentional:

    Ugh.
