    When I click on the “Like” and “Send” buttons the manual shortcodes I put in the post is getting picked up as text. (ie. [fb_count]). Is there a way to force that NOT to be picked up in the “like” and “send” text?

    Great plugin!!
    It could be possible that the Likes go to the Facebook Wall? now they are going only to my likes inside my Facebook.
