    Hi Guys

    I have looked through the forum and didn't find much relating to this so I figured I'd ask.  Has anyone or is anyone aware of anyone creating a form with the facebook share icon on it?  I would like to do this and have the submit button hidden until this is done.  I recongize that this requires special programming from someone who knows Facebook's API

     

    Thanks

    The Facebook Share button is already depreciated and was repleaced with the Like button. You may visit the following page for guides on how you can embed the form to your Facebook page:

    It means that the Share functionality was merged with the Like button, here is a post from the facebook developers page:

    What happened to the old Share button?

    We deprecated the Share Button when we launched the Like button, because the Like button improves clickthrough rates by allowing users to connect with one click, and by allowing them to see which of their friends have already connected. For reference, the Share button documentation is still available here.

    For your reference you may visit the following page:

    Cheers!
