Is it possible to get the number of a user's friends who clicked 'Like' on a particular item on a page on my site? i.e. something along the lines of '45 of your friends Like this'.
When you put a like button on a website, facebook renders it in the following format:
a) if the current user is logged in on facebook: Friend 1, Friend 2 and x others like this (or just the number of total likers if no friend like that)
b) if the current user is not logged in: x people like this.
In order to get the above result, you need to use standard layout and to have
show_faces value set to
true. If you want to customize that, you have to use the Graph API/FQL. But it is not that simple :)
