  1. Hi Annie! Thanks for great info… as always! Question… when trying to enter the like button there now appears to have a counter next to it showing how many people have liked it. And also, are you saying to “like” our Facebook page …. or “like” the URL????

    • Hi Cyndi! The Like buttons on a web site or blog are there so people can “Like” the page itself. The Like button on a Facebook page is to “Like” the Facebook page. It depends really on where the button is placed. The counter on a Facebook Like button is an option, some people have it and some don’t.
