Facebook Like functionality

The place to get started with Like functionality is
developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ where Facebook
maintains an easy to use tool to create the necessary HTML to be pasted into
the Web page.
It’s also important to note that a site owner can choose between the verbs
“Like” and “Recommend” to use for their button. Regardless of the verb used
for the button, the actions are the same.
There are also multiple variations and style options for the Like button. These
include: standard (with and without faces), button count and box count. Recent
reports have shown that sites which use the standard Like button with the
‘show faces’ option enabled experience 2-3 times higher click-through rates
than buttons without faces enabled.
