    Hi yasinakgun,
    release 1.6.2 of the Really Simple Facebook Twitter Share Buttons plugin is out, fixing the Facebook Like button recent issues.

    I am having a problem with the latest version of this plugin with the Facebook like button. Clicking 'Like' on the first post (doesn't matter whether I am on the home page displaying all recent posts OR the actual page of the first post) shows a 1 and then the 1 disappears. The 'Like' is never counted or posted on my wall.

    To be clear, this is only the case with the first post of the blog. All other posts work fine with the Like button. Please help?

    I've tried three different facebook like plugins, other sharing plugins. The FB like feature on all of them has been working intermittently. I wouldn't call it resolved completely, though I'll try Really Simple 1.6.2 now.

    Update. Whiletrue, 1.6.2 hasn't fixed it. It's the same probably yasinakgun mentioned.

    Hi all,
    you're right, the 1.6.2 fix doesn't solve all problems, because there're a mess on the Facebook side, causing a lot of websites, powered by our plugin or not, powered by WordPress or not, where the Like button behaves weird since some weeks ago.

    As said in a similar topic ( http://wordpress.org/support/topic/facebook-like-button-not-working-1 ), this whole new behaviour is complex, unexpected, undocumented and unwanted for me and a lot of other users I talked with. Facebook developers are definitely doing something wrong these days. See you soon :(

    Sorry it's such a headache, whiletrue. I'm using the older style facebook share button right now. It works fine and it still registers earlier 'likes'. I'll put back 'like' when facebook fixes it on their end.

    Yes mediaseth, it's a good choice right now. Luckily our plugin hasn't dropped support for the Facebook Share button even if it's deprecated by Facebook itself :)
