Now that Facebook is in the news...


Is there any way to find out who is liking our threads from the Facebook option on DU?

Might be interesting to determine if we can track the likes from Facebook in the months coming up to the election to see if can find Facebook accounts that were mining the information for their own purposes.

Thanks in advance.

1. great idea!....

....I post DU stuff on FB but I never even go into FB to see any reaction to it. I only have a few friends as I don't accept everyone. I do recall during the election I would get friend requests from ppl I never hear of before. I didn't accept them of course but now I wonder......

2. Don't know if we have the tools available to do that

 

But I avoid the Facebook like button at all costs.

3. kick

When someone hits the "like" button on Facebook, it would be nice, at least for the admins, to be able to track down who liked it - just in case we have to do some forensic work. I wonder if Facebook can provide the answer?
