I recently realized that the number of Facebook shares that shows up next to my smart button is showing not only shares but all likes and comments linked to that share.
In other words, if I shared my blog post on FB, every time someone likes my FB post or comments on it, the number on my blog goes up accordingly. I did a test by liking my post on FB and sure enough, the number on my blog went up as well.
It's not supposed to work this way, is it? I thought the stats are only supposed to show the # of shares?
The blog I need help with is onlyoublog.com.
