facebook share

Last month we wrote about FBShare, which allows you to use a Facebook share button - Tweetmeme style. But today, Facebook has just launched a new version of Facebook Share, which includes a live counter that tells you how many times an item has been shared.

Try it out:


Along with the improved look of the Share Button, Facebook Share now offers publishers detailed analytics. With new Share analytics, you can now access the information associated with each link shared on Facebook, including how often:

  • Users share the link on Facebook.
  • Users "like" the shared story.
  • Users comment on the shared story on Facebook.
  • Users click back to your site from the story.
More about this, on the Facebook blog.
