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!

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.
