Hear ye, hear ye...
Facebook has the new like and share buttons. You can generate the new like and share buttons at this link and this link, respectively (you need to login to Facebook).
I dig the Facebook share button much more better than the like button.
This rant is obsolete
If it's share, you don't have to like what you share right? But, like, man, you have the obligation to like the thing you share. What if you wanna share some horrible news, or some other non-like-able materials? Do you like them? NO, SIR.This method still works
But you still feel the urge to share the story (post) to your friends on Facebook, right? Uh huh.
Facebook is so ... hm hm
They generalized the sharing with the liking by
deprecatingnot emphasizing the awesomeness of the mighty share button. By the way, you can still use it, the sharing system, but you have to manually put the unique URL for every page of your site/blog post[update : turns out, it's already automatic - 'capturing' the current HTTP URL of the page/post - you just need to follow the steps from the developer link above], and create your own button.
On UNRELATED matter, let's take a look. This is a standard horizontal like (hate) button. Which has no adjustable parameter, at the time this post was typed, to hide the count thingy.
<div>tag to wrap the button element. And put inline
CSSon the wrapper element. Like so:
<div style='width:49px; height:24px; overflow:hidden;'>It will then look like this :
<!--this is the HTML part of the FB like button-->
<div class='fb-like' data-layout='button_count' data-send='false'
Why did you shave it? You might ask. Because. Just for the fun of because.
This is a part of my fun-rant moment.
Actually, we can substitute the word 'like' to 'recommend', but screw that, I'm having my own fun time.
If you want to use Facebook Share dialog with your own button, I've posted about it here
