Oops. Error corrected. Yup, that is how long I've been holding this post.

Ah yes. The tinyurl in your other comment is returning an error (AccessDeniedRequest). Can you try shortening and sharing again. This is kinda exciting.

Right. You would also have to hide the number that comes attached to the button. FB doesn\'t (yet?) provide the button without the count.

You care because correctness and accuracy matters, especially when it concerns matters of correctness and accuracy. Thank you for caring.

Okay, it looks like I'll be holding off on that correction. Thanks, Sean.

"A like button is not a like count. It is just the name of the plugin." That could have been another title for the post. You're absolutely right, and it looks like I failed to make that point. The button is not a like count, but I think most readers and publishers/sites don't realize that.

Categorizing the stats as "high school" pays a disservice to high school educators who would never hold this post up as an example of stellar data gathering. Yes, this is not a scientific study, consume with small grains of salt.
