Like box at the size of a like button - Possible?



5:35 pm on Dec 19, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

Is it possible to reduce Facebook's "Like box" social plug-in to a "Like" button + the number of followers of the relevant Facebook page? I want to use the "Like the Page with one click, without needing to visit the Page" functionality of the "Like box" without all the other things around.

Once I unticked all the boxes on the plug-in's page, I still have
- the profile picture of the Facebook page
- the Facebook page's name
- the phrase "You like this."
So I want all these three elements to go and get the number of followers back that disappears if you untick the "Show faces" box.

I have already searched quite a bit around the Internet on my quest to a solution, so to avoid misunderstandings here are a few points on what I am NOT trying to do.
- I am talking about the "Like box" and not about the Like button. By clicking the user will like the Facebook page, not like the page on which the button is located.
- I know that I can hide the profile pictures of the Facebook's pages followers by unticking "Show faces".

Thanks a lot for your help!

You can get that type of Facebook like button on your website.
just visit below link and set like button for your website as per your requirements. [developers.facebook.com...]

I found the solution:

Implement a normal Like button but specify the URL of your Facebook page (for example www.facebook.com/Yourpage) as URL to be liked.
