Show off Your Facebook Page Like Count

Last week a client came to us with a request to feature the number of Facebook fans prominently on their site. We whipped up a simple WordPress plugin that pulls in the like count of a Facebook page…it can be added to a post or page via shortcode or directly into your theme using a template tag. Additionally, you can set it to update automatically every hour, twice daily, or once a day.

The Facebook Page Like Count plugin is available for download here.

    Great was looking for such plugin, but does it fetches for only particular page or as many as we want?

    Right now it’s only setup to fetch from a single page. I can work on adding the page URL as an option to the the shortcode/tags.
