I've added the facebook "Like" buttons to all products (a relatively large number of pages). In the data specified on the page it requires an admin user ID, which I put my own ID.

When I select Like, it creates a facebook page so that I can post to the walls of others that choose to Like the same item. However, when someone else Likes it, there's seemingly no notification to let me know that people are Like-ing the item.

Perhaps I have set it up wrong in putting my User ID? Or is this how it is meant to work?

Hmm, that sounds like a spammy nightmare. Simply find pages that are liked by tens of thousands, like it and spam the walls of tens of thousands of strangers.

Or do you mean only you as the admin can post to the walls of others?

Only the admin can post to the walls of others. The intention is to speak in the "tone" of the item or product that people are a fan of, so that it's not spammy.

I specified my user ID as the admin, so it would seem to me that if someone else Likes the page, then it should show up in my list of pages so that I can administer it, yet it doesn't.
