    I just installed your plugin and I want to start by thanking you!
    Simple and well thought out user interface! (5 star)

    I have one issue:

    When i look at the social stats page the numbers are not correct.

    For example this post

    currently has 76 LIKES however in the stats it shows 76 in the facebook coloum however in the Total it shows 40?

    Any ideaas. I have run the page through the debugger and emptied my cache but with out any help.

    more info:

    If I go to :

    It shows I have 60 shares currently?

    Why such a difference? this is also backed up by http://sharedcount.com

    showing the figures below

    Likes: 40
    Shares: 13
    Comments: 7
    Total: 60

    Can anyone help unify the stats across Blog button count, Social stats from this plugin AND Insights

    The total number of shares is 60, which is confirmed by the facebook api:


    The plugin stats shows the number of likes, which is 40 as per the following URL (the source of the stats page data):


    If you want to include likes, shares and comments then change line 407 of file dcwp_stats.php from:

    $count['facebook'] = $counts["Facebook"]["like_count"];


    $count['facebook'] = $counts["Facebook"]["total_count"];

    Sorry to be a pain! however I'm not sure i understand.

    Can you explain the difference, I still don't understand why it show 76 likes on my web page and why the page reports a different number.

    Are there different types of LIKE?

    very confused?
