Once and a while a WordPress plugin comes along that I consider to be a “game changer”. The Like plugin is one of ’em.
One of the great things about Facebook Pages is that they can become viral. It may take you a month to get to 100 “fans” (I guess they’re now considered “people that like your Page”), but you could easily reach 1000 in the next week and 100,000 a week after that. This is due to the Facebook engine that automagically suggests Pages to your friends, and your friends’ friends, and so on and so forth. And of course it helps that many Facebook users are addicted and will click “Like” to anything they see.
Well, the Like plugin helps to make your WordPress posts and pages viral too!
See the buttons at the top and bottom of this post? Those are from Like.
One super cool feature is that it works with the new Facebook Open Graph API which makes it very easy for developers to integrate Facebook applications into websites. I suppose this is furthering Facebook’s goal to take over the world…but you could at least join them for the ride and get more visitors on the way!
Here’s what the plugin settings look like:
As you can see, it also hooks up to a Facebook application, although I haven’t tested this myself yet.
So what are ya waiting for? Download and install this wicked plugin and join the viral train.
