It’s Possible!: Facebook SHARE and LIKE buttons…at the same time!
Brilliant, many thanks!
@thekowalkerjourney. Thanks for this posting. Now, just having a bit of an issue with it and wondering how to fix it.
Using your suggestions to create a new service, when I click on the new Facebook Share service, a FB popup comes up. However, rather than it coming up with the thumbnail and link. It is instead coming up with a non-descriptive link and without the thumbnail. The links looks like this: http://wp.me/p1jHlp-4X .
However, I tried the FB Share service on your blog (http://jcrylequotes.com/), and when I go to Share on Facebook, the pop-up appears correctly with the thumbnail and link.
My question – is there additional steps needed to fix this issue? Looking forward to your response.
Hi there I have a similar problem, when click on share (the one created) it opens the page where you share to facebook and the link i get is borken without a thumbnail picture and when i hit the share button it says error on page?
this is what i get when i share and the facebook page opens: (No Title)
error posting this item.
oh and what i notice is that most of the posts on the home page will share but for example if i try share a gallery it then gives me that error message mentioned above. So i don’t know… for the share button, should one wait for the share button to “crawl” through the whole blog before it works for every post, page or index. My settings in the share area is set to posts, pages and index.
Just confusing why it works for some posts or articles and not for others.
@vernelle001: Someone reported this problem as well, see here:
Staff have been looking into this error since last night. Sometimes it resolves, sometimes not.
This is a great tip – thanks so much.
One issue for me: the thumbnails generated when hitting the Facebook “share” button are wrong. Oddly, it picks out every image on the page *apart* from the image used in the blog post. (My blog posts always have a “featured image”).
Anyone have any tips on getting Facebook to pick out the featured image?
Thanks. If it is that easy, what about del.ici.ous, LinkedIn, and all the others? What is the URL for these services? Does anyone know? This website seems to know, but I am not sure which part the URL is that I have to put in:
@barrygcooper: There is an ongoing issue about it at the moment…
@kantoos: Those instructions don’t work on WordPress.COM. However, the following article gives the information needed under Site URL and some images:

Thanks.. that is great considering facebook is the biggest networking site today!
This post was FREAKING AWESOME! Thank you so much!
Nice! Thanks for the help. Now I’m working on creating a Tweet button
This worked but it only worked on my other page, it didnt add it directly to my blog page… Help me please! Thanks
What do you mean by:

Please provide specific URLs for the posts/pages you are referring to.
I don’t see ANY share buttons on the blog linked to your name.
@timethief – actually would be great if we could use facebook like and facebook share buttons together
wow!! many thanks!!
Thank you SO MUCH for the advice!
I was wondering whether we can also add the *Like* button on the sidebar or header?!
so instead of people liking the posts, they can also like the blog itself?!
Your help is much appreciated!
genius. well done. I have changed my facebook setting s to https and I don’t seem to be able to link there any more? Any reason why? and what can I do about it?
