Simple solution - remove the Facebook Like Button, I've seen many others do it due to performance issues. Is it really worth all this hassle and maintenance for someone to "Like" your document? Heck, WebmasterWorld removed theirs a while ago. I wonder why?
Third party scripts are going to be the death of some sites, you watch and see.

Last month (april 9th) I have placed the "Like" button on one of my websites. Couple of minutes ago I checked my Analytics to see if there are any URLs with "fb_xd_fragment" in the reports.
I was a bit shocked to see that I have about 4,000 pageviews each day containing the "fb_xd_fragment". Total pageviews per day is about 16,000.
However, I did not see an increase in visitors or pageviews. Bounce rate and avg. time on site also didn't change. Avg. AdSense stats also didn't change in the past month.
Strange thing is that the "fb_xd_fragment" URLs stopped showing up in my Analytics reports on May 11th. But I did not change anything.
Could it be that Facebebook solved this problem?

Yep. I'm in niches that rely on word of mouth, and I'll gladly take the slight performance hit in order to reduce reliance on Google.

I don't see ?fb_xd fragment attached to my URLs, but ?sms_ss=facebook&at_xt=4dc9f7bbdc83bf0d.
Is that the same issue?

Like Dlocks I experienced up to 3000 pageviews on certain pages a day, which wasn't normal.

What p1r said. We realized originally that Facebook "like" buttons is a fad, giving away your farm to some unknown third party with clearly deep pockets to compete with you, and a danger that any third party js represents (such as your pages being down due to some bug or FB servers being slow).
Now if we can have WebmasterWorld remove Tweet button....hopefully it is clear that since Goldman Sachs is being sued by the US government for "million fraud cases a year" (actual quote by a US congressman), they may not have money anymore to throw into bottomless pits such as Tweeter. And there's a big chance now that Tweeter will - pooof - disappear, just like many previous dot bombs.

> Facebook "like" buttons is a fad
Sorry, I don't agree. I think it's here to stay.

Clearly it isn't on any of my sites, and it clearly wasn't here to stay on WebmasterWorld.
