You may have noticed your Facebook Like buttons have a little something extra today: A scroll bar.
Turns out Facebook changed the way they’re displaying the Like button and since we just pass it along – with a little special sauce to capture them for our analytics – it’s causing a problem for our users.
Luckily, we’ve got a couple solutions for this until we can put out an official fix, which should be soon.
First, you can make sure you have Facebooks FBML namespace in your <html> tag. For example:
You might have other namespaces in the HTML tag. Just make sure everything it includes xmlns:fb=”http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml” before the greater-than sign.
Second, you can alter the code for the AddThis Facebook like button to specify the appropriate height by adding an fb:like:height attribute, like this:
<a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:height="25">
Thanks in advance for your patience, and thanks for using AddThis!
