You'll "Like" this Winner!

We really “like” the fact that we have a winner for our Facebook “Like Box” Visualforce Component challenge. Congratulations to Shanmuk1729 who made a cool $600 for building a nifty little Visualforce Component that displays a Like Box social plugin on a Visualforce page.

The Like Box is a social plugin that enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to:

  • See how many users already like this Page, and which of their friends like it too
  • Read recent posts from the Page
  • Like the Page with one click, without needing to visit the Page
We wrote this challenge with the new Force.com Toolkit for Facebook specifically in mind. Hopefully we’ll be able to include this component in the toolkit.
