It's OK, could use a tweak!
By , for WP 3.8

Works ok. There's one thing that's irritating me...

Something that should be addressed is if the visitor already "liked" the post (even if they "liked" on Facebook), they have to Un-like the post then re-like the post to gain access to the content.

Scenario:
You share your blog post on Facebook.
A visitor "Likes" the Facebook Status
The visitor clicks through to your blog post
The visitor already "liked" the Facebook status, which is the exact same like button that the Like Gate puts up.
This means they already liked the content.
Now they must unlike the content and re-like it in order to be able to see the hidden content.

The plugin should be able to detect who already likes the content and automatically open the content for those who like the content already.

Otherwise, it's a very cool plugin!

Deleted My Content!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I used on a blog post I already posted. Highlighted the content, then clicked the thumbs up button. The tags were added. Update and preview. Suddenly the text that was highlighted was REPLACED with a sentence that said "place your content here." WTF? It deleted my conent!

Thank goodness I had the article written elsewhere or I would of been up s-creek without a paddle!

Then re-added the conent between the tags to see if it worked. No. Was hidden but NO WORDING THAT SAYS LIKE THIS TO READ FURTHER. Just showed like button with no explaination.

Deactivated. Deleted.
