Reviews

Better than average, missing alingnment

I reviewed about 20 facebook like buttons today to try and find one I “liked” myself (pun intended). This was my second favorite, it’s truly free, nice and simple, worked fine and the interface is fairly standard (ie: no silly fonts/images/adds. You don’t need to use any short codes. The settings in this app seem to appear in many apps, so I am assuming it’s using some standard facebook template etc.

The main reason I didn’t use it was because I wanted my button aligned to the right, and there didn’t seem to be an option for that. Also I had to mess about a little to stop the widget (side bar) cutting off the bottom of the box.

Works, but could use some work

It works so that’s good, but it needs some work.
When using it as a widget the width should be set automatically, not by the user, although an override is always good.

Setting the widget height below 100 pixels makes the facebook cover disappear, even though there is no reason for it and because of that there is an extra 30 pixels left below the widget, which looks bad.

Disabling the “Show Faces” option also removes how many friends liked the page, that doesn’t make sense, it should probably be renamed to “Show Friends who liked the page”.
Also when i had it enabled it said that 2 friends liked this page but 5 faces were shown, so something is broken somewhere.

Both on your site and in the description you say “If you have any suggestions or feedback, please post it in the following link.” and there is no link in either places.

Hopefully your next update will fix these issues.
