Write out <fb:like> from javascript?

I'm doing some ajax, then writing out content via javascript.
If I do something like this in JS:

newcontent += '<fb:like href="http://www.domain.com/url.aspx"></fb:like>';

Then set the innerHTML of a div or something to the value of 'newcontent', nothing happens. I know the rest of the code is working because newcontent contains a whole bunch of other JS and html that's working.

I was able to get the iFrame version of the like to work, but it doesn't seem like I can capture "likes" by using 'edge.create' from an iFrame like, right?

Thanks so much!

If the data you are trying to capture is from a different domain than the page/iframe it is going to, the "same origin" policy may be blocking you.

It's functioning fine, but you need to parse the new element you've inserted into the DOM:



after you set the innerHTML
