    2 things I noticed.

    1. You can hack the like button to artificially inflate your like count. In a blog post you could ask a question.

    “Do you “LIKE” facebook?” Where “LIKE” is the button. Most users would click it.

    2. It doesn’t check that the URL you set in the code matches the site the click came from – not sure if that’s important or not yet.

    Any idea how to get the data back out from FB on this?

    Hi guys,

    It was easy to add the Like button to my WP Thesis-based blog. And now I’m seeing more and more “likes”.

    But how to see who exactly likes a blog post using Facebook social plugins – the Like button? Do you know?

    Thanks for the great show.

    Good luck!

    Alex
